Juneteenth More Information

The Woodland Hills School District would like to wish the entire community a very happy Juneteenth! This very special day, which has been celebrated as Freedom Day, Liberation Day, or Emancipation Day in years past, commemorates June 19, 1865, the day when the enslaved Africans and African Americans held in Galveston, Texas learned of their freedom, more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.  Juneteenth became a Federal Holiday in 2021.

As we embark upon this holiday weekend, we hope you will all treasure your time with friends and family, and on Sunday, June 19 you will reflect on the significance of this momentous day. Happy Juneteenth!

Please take a moment to review some information on the holiday:


What is Juneteenth?

On June 19, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas. He informed the enslaved African Americans of their freedom and that the Civil War had ended. This momentous occasion has been celebrated as Juneteenth — a combination of June and 19th — for over 150 years.  In was made a federal holiday in 2021.
