Flags lowered to half-staff for two remembrances

Flags lowered to half staff in front of Avanti High School building

Gov. Jay Inslee directed earlier this week that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities, including schools and support buildings, be lowered to half-staff in remembrance of two individuals:

  • Flags are flying at half-staff today, Friday, March 25, 2022 in memory of Pierce County Deputy Sheriff Dominique Calata, who died in the line of duty on March 16. Flags will remain at half-staff until close of business or sunset today.
  • Flags were lowered to half staff on Wednesday, March 23 in honor and remembrance of former Secretary of State Madeleine Korbel Albright. Flags will return to full staff on Monday morning, March 28, 2022.

All flag lowerings are also posted at the top of the district Home page under Announcements.
