Veterans Day Holiday: November 11, 2020.

School closed Wednesday. Thanks to all who have served our country!

Veterans Day, observed annually on November 11, is a tribute to military Veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Not to be confused with Memorial Day, which honors those who died while in service, Veterans Day honors all military Veterans, including those still with us.

Veterans Day, originally Armistice Day, was first issued by President Wilson on November 11, 1919 a year after the end of World War I. Armistice Day honored the fallen soldiers of The Great War for their sacrifice and bravery. In 1954, after World War II and the Korean War, Congress, at the urging of Veterans service organizations, amended Armistice Day by replacing “Armistice” with “Veterans,” and November 11 became a legal holiday to honor U.S. Veterans of all wars.
