NYCDOE Schools Closed on June 20, in Observance of Juneteenth

Dear PS 101 Families:

Juneteenth is a time for reflection, assessment, and self-improvement. People across the country of all races, nationalities, and religions unite on this day to acknowledge the stain of slavery and celebrate the countless contributions of Black Americans. As Juneteenth falls on a Sunday, all New York City schools will be closed on Monday, June 20. We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, as we resume our regular instructional schedule.

Below are resources to support you and your school community in recognizing and discussing the meaning and significance of Juneteenth:
