Distinctive Schools is closed today in honor of Juneteenth. As an organization, we will honor the importance of this day in American history. In solidarity with our staff, families & students, and aligned to a growing number of companies across the country, we close our office and campus doors for a day of remembrance and response to systemic racism, and to commemorate our commitment to continued progress in our own equity work as an organization. We will continue to cultivate an organization together that focuses on inclusivity and solidarity across all lines of difference in our world. We hope you will take a moment to reflect, honor and observe this historic day.
