At its meeting yesterday, the San Mateo County Community College District Board of Trustees adopted Juneteenth National Independence Day as a District-recognized holiday. Juneteenth recognizes the end of slavery in the United States.
Due to the timing of the federal action late last week creating the holiday the District was not able to observe the holiday on its actual date of June 19. In observance of Juneteenth National Independence Day, the Board has set Monday, June 28, 2021 for the District to recognize the holiday this year. In future years, the holiday will be recognized on June 19.
As such, the District, including Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline College, will be closed and there will be no classes on Monday, June 28, 2021.
