Great American Eclipse - August 21, 2017


Coosa Middle School Solar Eclipse Viewing Plan


On Monday, August 21, 2017, Floyd County Schools will be just outside the path of a total eclipse. In the Rome area at approximately 2:36 p.m., the sun will be about 95 percent obscured. This event is being called “The Great American Solar Eclipse” because it is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States. Planning is already underway to ensure our students can experience this unique event in a safe environment. The eclipse will occur at the end of the school day, so, in order to ensure a safe dismissal and to allow teachers and students to experience this incredible historic event & learning opportunity, Floyd County Schools dismissal will experience a delay of approximately 30 minutes.


Safety is always a top priority for Floyd County Schools. We will take precautionary measures with both students and staff to make this experience safe and enjoyable. With the assistance of our PTO, Coosa Middle School has purchased eclipse-safe viewing glasses that meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for students and staff. With cooperation of staff and students to follow this plan, there should be no problem making this a memorable experience for everyone.


We appreciate your continued support of our staff, your students and our Confident, Compassionate & Committed ... Coosa Middle School--------------------------------------------.

Annual Notification – Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986 requires parents, students, teachers, and employee organizations be notified of the Asbestos Management Plan at each facility. This notification provides information detailing Floyd County School District’s strict compliance with AHERA.

AHERA requires all schools, pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade, to be inspected for Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM) and for an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP), which outlines the control and management of ACBM in each facility, to be developed.

The AMP includes an operations and maintenance program, which will control exposure to any asbestos-containing materials through a systematic schedule of monitoring, employee training, recordkeeping, and periodic re-inspections. Maintenance and custodial personnel receive asbestos awareness training to qualify them to conduct their routine activities around asbestos. 

A copy of the AMP for each school is available for review in the principal’s office of that school. Questions pertaining to asbestos are to be directed to David Van Hook, Director of Facilities, at 706-234-1031 ext. 7270.
