Boone County Schools Statement on Copy-Cat Threats logo

Boone County Schools is one of many school districts across the country that is being subjected to copy- cat threats of the school tragedy in Florida.  We are working with local authorities as they investigate a recent rash of rumors and threats on our campuses.  Student suspects in each of the cases were immediately identified and apprehended.  They were charged by local authorities and disciplined by their schools.   In each case a thorough investigation was conducted by the school district and authorities.  No student or staff member was ever in danger. Confidentiality laws prevent Boone County Schools from talking about the persons involved or the specifics of the incidents. Boone County Schools will continue to remain on alert, following our safety protocols and working with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department and Florence Police as future issues arise.

Kentucky Department for Public Health ALERT Solar Eclipse and Eye Safety

                                           Kentucky Public Health

 

A total solar eclipse is probably the most spectacular astronomical event that most people will experience in their lives. There is a great deal of interest in watching eclipses, but it must be done safely.  Because of this exceptional opportunity, there is concern that people will be more likely to stare at the Sun during this event.  Improper viewing of the Sun during an eclipse can result in eye injuries such as the development of "eclipse blindness" or retinal burns.

The danger to vision is significant because retinal eye injuries occur without any feeling of pain (there are no pain receptors in the retina), and the visual effects do not occur for at least several hours or days after the damage is done.

It is never safe to look directly at the Sun at any time.  This includes looking during the partial phases of a total solar eclipse without the proper equipment and techniques. Even when 99% of the Sun's surface is obscured during the partial phases of a solar eclipse, the remaining crescent Sun is still intense enough to cause a retinal burn.  If you are in the narrow range of Kentucky where 100% of the sun will be blocked by the moon (totality), the Sun can ONLY be viewed without appropriate eye protection during that short time, approximately 2:30 minutes.
