Wisconsin – Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19, marks the day in 1865 when news of the abolition of slavery reached Galveston, Texas. In observance of this historic event, various institutions in Wisconsin will be closed today.

Area summer schools and governmental agencies are among those observing the holiday. Residents are advised to call ahead before visiting banks, as many will be closed. Juneteenth has been recognized as a federal holiday, affecting several services, including mail delivery.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced that all postal service retail locations will be closed today. Regular mail delivery will not occur; however, holiday premium Priority Mail Express services will still be available. This means that while typical mail won’t be delivered, Priority Mail Express will be processed and delivered as usual.

Residents planning to visit any government office, school, or bank should verify their status beforehand. Juneteenth serves as a significant day of reflection and celebration of freedom, making it crucial to be aware of these closures and service changes.
