FWISD Flags to Half-Staff

(Thursday, February 25, 2021) -- President Joseph Biden has ordered all flags to be lowered to half-staff in memory of the more than 500,000 Americans who have died from the COVID-19 virus. Flags will remain at half-staff until sunset (or close of business) on Friday, February 26.

“We as a Nation, must remember them so we can begin to heal, to unite, and find purpose as one Nation to defeat this pandemic,” he said. 

In the proclamation President Biden noted that more Americans have died from the virus than died during World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined.
