The Olympia School District recognizes all flag lowerings directed by Gov. Jay Inslee. Flags are lowered to half-staff around the district, including all schools and support facilities, for a variety of observances/memorials.
A news article sharing the reason for the flag lowering is posted on the district and all school websites on the date of the flag lowering. The information is also shared on the Olympia School District social media pages. Families routinely ask why the flags are lowered to half-staff, and you can direct them to both the district website or social media.
