As a result of last week’s shooting at the STEM school in Highlands Ranch, it should be noted that the flags at Mead High School are at half mast.

This was ordered by Governor Jared Polis as a way to honor the tragedy that took place on Wednesday, May 7, 2019.

Along with encouragement from administration for a moment of silence, many teachers agree there should be a moment to honor the victims.

On Tuesday morning, May 14, Assistant Principal Alain Valette sent out an email to all staff explaining that “the flags were at half mast in order to honor the students and will be until the end of today.”

He also advised teachers to have a moment of silence during Mav 30 classes today.

It was explained by Mr. Valette that most people, including himself, don’t always know why the flags are at half mast. Some may not even notice.

That being said, Valette added, “I believe it is important to acknowledge and understand why and honor what has happened.”

The Mav recently published an article about Colorado’s problem with mass shootings here.
