On June 17, 2021, President Biden signed legislation that designated June 19 as a federal holiday. Country Day has also decided to recognize Juneteenth as a holiday that our school honors.
Going forward Country Day will be closed on June 19. For this year, offices will be closed on Monday, June 21. In future years, when the holiday falls on the weekend, we will be fully closed either the preceding Friday or the following Monday.
A resource list about the significance of Juneteenth in our nation’s history is included below. We hope you take the time to read about this holiday if you are unaware of its meaning.
