National Anthem Ettiquette

In an effort to model and teach our students the correct etiquette for the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem, we will adhere to the following guidelines from the U.S. Congress.  If you, parents and community members, are in the building during the morning pledge and anthem, please stop and follow these guidelines also in an effort to assist us in modeling the proper etiquette.

      In 2007, the U.S. Congress addressed etiquette for the pledge of allegiance and the    national anthem in 36 USC 301. When saying the pledge of allegiance, citizens of all ages should stand at attention, face the flag, and salute by placing the right hand over the heart. Men should remove their hats, and women any sports caps. When in uniform, military personnel, firefighters, and law enforcement officers give a military salute.  Veterans and service personnel out of uniform may give the military salute or place the right hand over the heart.

     Everyone, even very young children, should rise, remain standing, and salute by placing the right hand over the heart during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner—first note to last. The anthem isn't easy to sing, and you need not do so if you don't have the necessary range. But you must stand quietly until  "O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave" has rung out and the music ends.
