Memorial Day closing

Today is Memorial Day and all Educators locations are closed to observe the holiday. All locations will open for regular hours on Tuesday.

Be sure to remember why today is a holiday — to honor those people who died while serving in the armed forces. Even if it’s just for a moment, be sure to think about the sacrifice those men and women made in service of our country.

Memorial Day flag etiquette

The correct raising of the United States flag on Memorial Day is as follows: It is raised briskly to the top of the flagpole, then slowly lowered to half-staff, where it remains until noon. It is raised to full staff for the remainder of the day.

It’s all very symbolic. The half-staff position honors those who have sacrificed their lives, and at noon, it is raised in honor of those who still fight for our country.
