Our Flags Today

  • Our flags fly at half-staff upon the death of principal figures as a mark of respect for their memory as ordered by the President and/or Governor. Click here for more information on our flag status today. In many instances, students are responsible for participating in or conducting flag-related exercises. While a great responsibility and honor for our students, we believe that it also helps build a sense of patriotism and civic pride.
