Students were met with confusion upon returning to school to see a missing flagpole. Despite false rumors of new politically correct policies it was removed simply for maintenance.

According to head janitor M.J. Plank, the flag pole suffered a malfunction over the summer. The pulley system became stuck and several weeks before school started, the entire pole was removed via crane. It is currently undergoing repairs and should be returned when those are complete.
