Elkhart County, IN – In anticipation of the solar eclipse set to captivate audiences on Monday, April 8, communities along the eastern coast of the United States are gearing up in unique ways.

In response to this fervor, Elkhart Community Schools in Indiana is taking a proactive approach to ensure the local community is both educated and prepared.
