Flag Display and Daily Flag Exercises

State law provides as follows:

“The board of directors of every school district shall cause a United States flag being in good condition to be displayed during school hours upon or near every public school plant, except during inclement weather. They shall cause appropriate flag exercises to be held in each classroom at the beginning of the school day, and in every school at the opening of all school assemblies, at which exercise those pupils so desiring shall recite the following salute to the flag: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Students not reciting the pledge shall maintain a respectful silence. The salute to the flag or the national anthem shall be rendered immediately preceding interschool events when feasible.”

It is a requirement of this district to have an American Flag on display in each classroom at all times. Students who choose to refrain from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance may either stand or remain seated. Each principal shall advise the teachers in his building regarding the time for administering the flag salute in accordance with the state law quoted above.
