Lowering the Flag

Princeton Montessori School Policy

Our Policy on Flying the Flag at Half-Mast

Recently we had some questions as to the school practice related to lowering the U.S. flag when there is a national day of mourning, as in the recent tragedy in Pittsburgh.  Our school follows federal guidelines related to when to fly the U.S. flag at half-mast.  They are as follows:
The United States flag flies at half-staff when the nation is in mourning. These periods of mourning occur by Presidential proclamation.  The President of the United States can direct how the executive branch of the government flies the flag, including traditions or customs for flying the flag at half-staff.
How do the teachers respond to children:
On national days of mourning the children may have questions about why the flag is flying at half-mast. The teachers will respond to any student questions with care for the age of the child and sensitivities of parents to how much knowledge their children should have on particulars related to each incident.
