FUSD Closed in Observance of Veterans Day

  • Veterans Day

    All ֱ schools and offices will be closed on Friday, November 10, 2023 in observance of the Veterans Day Holiday.  In case of emergency, please remember that School Police Services is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including all holidays.

    Why do we Celebrate Veterans Day?

    World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, fighting actually ceased seven months earlier when an armistice or temporary cessation of hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

    In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. The original concept for the celebration was for a day observed with parades and public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11 a.m.

    An Act approved in 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday - a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after the United States participation in both World War II and the Korean War, Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its place the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation in 1954, November 11th became a day to honor America's veterans of all wars for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
