Flags lowered to half-staff through Monday, March 22

Gov. Jay Inslee hereby directs that Washington State and United States flags at all state agencies, including schools and support buildings, be lowered to half-staff immediately “in remembrance of the victims who lost their lives in the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on March 16, 2021 in the Atlanta Metropolitan area.”

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset on Monday, March 22, 2021.

Note: We publish all flag lowering notices on our district website as soon as they are issued, and we also include in the staff blog so that staff members are aware of why flags are at half-staff and can share information with families or students who may ask questions.
