2333 Policy – Flag Exercises

Flag exercises will be conducted in each classroom at the beginning of the school day and at the opening of all school assemblies. Students not reciting the pledge of allegiance will maintain a respectful silence while either seated or standing. When feasible, the salute to the flag or the national anthem will be rendered immediately preceding interschool events.

The United States flag will be displayed upon or near every public school and district office, except during inclement weather.
