2017 Total Solar Eclipse
Sevier County Schools will be closed on Monday, August 21, 2017
August 21 will bring a total solar eclipse to the United States. The Southwest portion of Sevier County will lie in the shadow (totality) of the eclipse and other parts of our county will experience almost complete sun blockage. The Smoky Mountain area has been designated by many experts as a prime site for viewing the eclipse and traffic congestion is expected to be heavy on that day. Due to traffic congestion, the expected time of the eclipse coinciding with peak dismissal times, and other safety concerns, Director of Schools Jack A. Parton has decided to close schools on August 21, 2017.

The school system will provide each student and employee National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) approved viewing glasses and teachers will lead instruction about the event to our students during the first days of the 2017-2018 school year.  Dr. Jack A. Parton stated, "I believe that school closure on August 21 is in the best interest of our students. This will also allow families to plan for the safe viewing of this historic phenomenon."
