Pack 163

McAuliffe Flag Duty

Our Pack will be providing Flag Duty at McAuliffe during August and September. If each of our McAuliffe scout families sign-up for at least 5 days of flag duty, we will be in good shape! Please read the following information for Flag Duty details, instructions on how to fold the flags, and a reminder on flag etiquette. Thank you!

Flag duty details:

  • Raising and lowering the flags is not a one-man job. Parents should plan to assist their scout(s) with Flag Duty if possible or arrange for a friend to help.

  • The Flags are located in a plastic bin in McAuliffe’s office.  The bin is stored on the shelves along the right wall, closest to the front door

  • The school office opens at 7:15 am so flags can be raised anytime between 7:15-7:45.

  • The U.S. flag is always flown at the top with the Texas state flag underneath it.

  • The Texas state flag is right-side up when the white stripe is on top of the red.

  • Flags should be lowered, folded, and stowed in the office as soon as school is dismissed. Students staying after school for tutoring or ESD may lower flags and return at 7:15 am the following day if necessary.

  • The flags do not need to be raised in inclement weather or if inclement weather is expected during school hours (ie. rain, freezing temperatures).  

  • Please be aware of times when the flag should be flown at Half Staff.  For more information and to sign-up for Alerts see the following website: www.halfstaff.org"

How to fold the flags:

Flag etiquette:

  • The U.S. flag occupies a position of honor and when grouped with other flags, (i.e., state flag, pack flag), it should always be at the center, in front of, or higher than the other flags.

  • On the flagpole, the U.S. flag should always fly above the state flag.

  • The Texas flag should be hung with the white stripe on top and the red on bottom [A helpful hint: As a society we prefer peace (white) over war (red)].

  • The flag should be raised quickly and lowered slowly.

  • To place the flag at half-staff, hoist it to the top for an instant and lower it to a position half way between the top and bottom of the staff. The flag is to be raised again to the peak for a moment before it is lowered.

  • The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground.

  • Unless the flagpole is lighted, the flag should be lowered at dusk.
