Leander ISD schools will be open as usual on Monday, April 8, 2024 to witness this rare and once-in-a-lifetime event.

This article provides information specific to our region on the eclipse and its viewing. Between 1 and 2 p.m. will be the optimal time for viewing in our area.


Safety is the number one priority when viewing a total solar eclipse. As each school makes their own plan to provide students with the opportunity to watch the eclipse, the district has been working with them on a set of safety guidelines to ensure a safe learning experience.

It’s essential for individuals to take appropriate precautions, such as wearing proper eye protection and practicing sun safety (e.g., hydration, and applying sunscreen), to minimize the risk of medical issues during and after a full solar eclipse. We’ve provided more details about solar eclipse safety on our webpage.

Thanks to PTA, campus, and district purchases of safety glasses, along with viewers donated by Buc-ee’s, Leander ISD can provide all students and staff with eye safety devices.
