UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) — A notice posted on the Upper Arlington Schools website says too many employees will take Monday off to solar eclipsedemanding that the district cancel classes.

“Unfortunately, the uniqueness of the circumstances surrounding the eclipse has placed us with staffing challenges that impact our ability to safely supervise all students,” the notice states. “At this point, we decided it was best to make the call now and give families time to take care of any child care needs.”

The district was going to have an early dismissal so students and staff could view the eclipse.

Almost all other districts in central Ohio They are closed or offer early checkout on Monday.
