As warnings about vision damage and the eclipse were recently updated, Propel Schools is delaying the start of the school year by one day.
The official first day of school for Propel students will be Tuesday, Aug. 22. Individual schools will be reaching out to families regarding the staggered start schedule changes.
The Pennsylvania Office of Childhood Development and Early Learning issued an advisory cautioning childcare facilities and education programs to keep students indoors Monday, Aug. 21, between noon and 4:30 p.m. to prevent direct viewing of the partial eclipse.
