Redhawks took a step out of the classroom to witness the solar eclipse. Glasses were provided to students by the school.

It’s a school wide science lesson on Monday, but none of the learning will take place inside a classroom.

Instead, almost the whole school is headed outside.

For the first time since Aug. 21, 2017, there will be a total solar eclipse taking place on April 8. This solar eclipse will be in Texas total path totality, meaning the moon will completely cover the sun.

“We’re going to have a total solar eclipse,” science teacher Holly Mosley said. “Frisco is in the path of totality we’ll get to see and it will get dark for a few minutes during the middle of the day.”

With the help of principal Stacey Whaling, all students and staff are getting the opportunity to watch the eclipse outside during class.

“So the reason I decided to get the glasses for everyone it’s like a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to get to see this total eclipse,” Whaling said. “It doesn’t happen very often and it probably won’t happen again in our lifetime so it’s a very big thing for students.”

Students such as sophomore Camorra Clark can’t wait to experience the solar eclipse.

“I’m excited to see it because it’s going to be my first time seeing it and I get to see it with my friends,” Clark said.
