On August 21, 2017, the middle Georgia area will experience a solar eclipse at approximately 2:41 p.m. As a result, the Laurens County School System will release students early so all pupils will be home safely during the darkest hours of the event. Early release on August 21 will begin at 12:00 p.m. Prior to this event, teachers will conduct lessons on the eclipse so students can learn about this rare occurrence. Lunch schedules will be adjusted to accommodate the early release.
