Flags Lowered To Half-Staff For General Colin Powell

To honor the memory and life of service of former U.S. Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell, President Joseph R. Biden has ordered all U.S. flags to be lowered to half-staff until sunset Friday, October 22, 2021.

The Fort Worth ISD will comply with this order, and flags will remain at half-staff until the close of school on Friday. Please note, flag protocol prescribes that no flag is to fly higher than the U.S. flag, meaning that all flags in Texas should be flown at half-staff for the same duration.
