The total solar eclipse is coming on Monday, April 8 and just about everyone is making plans to see this amazing site as its path runs straight through Arkansas.

A lot of school districts in Arkansas realize the importance of this event and also know that it will be difficult to hold students' attention on April 8. That being said, there are a lot of schools that have decided to close for this historic day so kids can be with their families and witness this big event.

In Arkansas, the path is so centrally located that it will be easy for people to get to a destination to see the total eclipse. I have a feeling that a lot of families who are located just outside the eclipse path will travel an hour or two to see it.
