Dear Carlos Rosario School Community,

This Monday, May 1st we will not be holding classes at either campus in solidarity with students and staff who will be joining in protests for International Workers’ Day. Many in our immigrant community need access to legal services and resources at this time. As an institution with the mission to support immigrants, our doors will be open on May 1st to serve the community through a special legal clinic in partnership with AYUDA with free one-on-one legal advice, a Community Resource Fair, and counseling services. Please see below a full schedule of events. Be sure to ask your teachers about learning activities related to International Workers’ Day.

Harvard St. Campus Services
Legal Clinic by AYUDA: 10am-12pm
Community Resource Fair: 9:00am-3:00pm
Counseling Services: 8:30am-8:30pm
