Roseville High School Apologizes After Saying American Flag Violates Dress Code

Roseville High School has issued a statement clarifying their dress code after a social media post showing the school banning the American flag ignited an online firestorm.

School leaders subsequently apologized for the flyer that was sent home, saying the incident was a misunderstanding, as the actual school rule book says that a flag can not be worn in a demeaning manner, whatever the hell that means.

The abridged version sent to parents didn't provide such clarification though, it simply listed the American flag as a banned item that would violate school rules.

A picture of the flyer received thousands of shares and comments within just a couple hours. The opinion was nearly unanimous, people believed the school was in the wrong.

The Roseville area has been in the news this year after a man was ticketed in his own driveway for leaving his car unattended in the winter so it could warm up while he was inside. That incident led to a new law being passed, making it legal to do what millions of Michiganders already do every winter.

  1. Roseville people have too much idle time to create silly rules. Get to work.
