Memorial Day Observance

Rio Salado College will be closed on Monday, May 26 in observance of Memorial Day.

There is a traditional way of displaying the US flag on this special day. The flag is raised quickly to the top of the staff and then lowered slowly to the half-mast position, where it remains until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day. The half-staff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. At noon their memory is raised by the living.
