Professional Dress Tuesdays

dress

As we embark on a new school year we want our students to not only be successful but look successful as well. Every fourth Tuesday beginning August 30, we will have Professional Dress Tuesdays. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Boys should wear collared shirts, slacks, and ties or bowties. Girls should wear a dress/skirt or dress slacks and a string of pearls. Students who participate will get five PBIS points.

Juneteenth Observance

juneteenth

During the Valdosta Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, June 14, Valdosta City Schools officials announced they will recognize Juneteenth as an official holiday. Juneteenth National Independence Day, which falls on Sunday, June 19, will be observed Monday, June 20, and all Valdosta City Schools offices and buildings will be closed.

On June 19, 1865, Union troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, the most remote part of the Confederacy, to announce that the Civil War had ended and that all enslaved people were now free. Often referred to as the country’s “second Independence Day,” Juneteenth proclaims freedom and has been celebrated in many parts of the country since the late 1800s.

President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act into law declaring the day as a federal holiday on June 17, 2021. In April of 2022, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed state legislation recognizing it as a state holiday.

All Valdosta City Schools staff and Summer School students will have the day off on Monday, June 20, the district will reopen on Tuesday, June 21.
