June 19 marks Juneteenth National Independence Day, a day to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. It's a time for reflection on the long road to freedom, celebration of Black culture and achievement, and recommitment to building a more equitable future.

This year, we recognize Juneteenth and encourage all to learn about its history, celebrate the many contributions of Black Americans, and commit to creating a country where everyone can live free and without fear. Learn more here.

In observance of this day, all JUHSD sites, including summer school, will be closed on Wednesday, June 19, 2024.
