Other days when both flags are to be flown half-staff include any time per presidential proclamation and on the following days:
- May 15, Peace Officers Memorial Day
- September 11, Patriot Day
- December 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
- Memorial Day (date varies), but only at half-staff until noon. At noon, the flags are to be hoisted to full-staff.
If school is not in session on any day when flags are ordered to be flown half-staff, there is no requirement to have a district employee tend to this duty. That is, if school is not in session, a district does not need to fly the flags at all. For more information about flag etiquette, see http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagetiq.html.
