Early Dismissal for ASD-N Students for Solar Eclipse on April 8th

Posted: April 7, 2024

The big day is here!

This is a reminder that ASD-N students will have an early dismissal on Monday, April 8th.


In fact, it's a very rare and historical event that is taking place April 8th over North America – a total solar eclipse. We have not experienced one of those here in New Brunswick since the year 932!

What does this mean? As the Moon aligns perfectly between Earth and the Sun, temporary darkness will sweep across parts of the country, and our region in New Brunswick will be right in the path. Parts of our District will even fall into the solar eclipse path of totality!

Please note that all schools in ASD-N will finish at noon on April 8th, to allow students to safely arrive at their after-school destinations before the eclipse begins.

All students will have received eclipse viewing glasses before being dismissed.
