Let's Be Better Together!


  • Benton County Schools will be closed Monday, August 21, 2017 due to the Solar Eclipse. The district was notified today, Monday, August 14, 2017 that a large portion of the glasses purchased for students and staff has been recalled and there‚Äôs not enough time to order additional glasses. We apologize for the short notice but we feel like this is the best decision for the safety of our students and staff.

  • Parents, you should have or will be getting today a sheet explaining about the solar eclipse that is coming. We need you to sign and return this in order for your student to participate. Please call the school if you have any questions. We want to also give a BIG THANKS to Camden Eye Care Associates for purchasing eye wear for all staff and students!

Solar Eclipse Safety

  • Enjoy the Total Solar Eclipse Safely

    by Tom Montgomery, Vice President, NGU Risk Management

    It is well known that much of Tennessee lies in the total solar eclipse path which will take place on August 21.  

    At TNRMT we recognize that you wish to take advantage of this rare educational experience.

    We offer the following comments and links to assist you in assuring the safety of your students and faculty, while minimizing any potential liability exposure:

    The eclipse can be viewed indirectly or with proper eye protection, the eclipse can be viewed directly as well. Special purpose solar filters, or “eclipse glasses” are available now which meet USO12312-2 international standards. Typical welders glass is unacceptable-only welders glass that is # 14 or darker provides adequate protection. Most welders hoods are not that dark.
