On Monday, Aug. 21 our region will experience a partial solar eclipse which will peak at 10:17 a.m. Although this is a spectacular event to witness, safety for you and our students is of paramount importance. Looking at the sun for any length of time without protection can result in permanent damage to your eyes. The only safe way to look directly at the sun or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses" or handheld solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight.

 

Please view NASA's flyer regarding the eclipse for more viewing and safety tips.

Chicas Latinas de Sacramento, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is striving to reduce the digital divide and provide equal opportunities by giving students the tools they need to succeed. In this digital age, lacking an at-home computer makes it difficult to complete homework and further learning. As a result, we are collecting gently used laptops, refurbishing them, and supplying them to students in need of an at-home computer.

 

This year we are donating the laptops to middle school students. Applications are due June 16, 2017 and students may apply by completing the attached application (provided in English and Spanish).
