Confederate flag flies briefly at school

Times Staff Reports

Monday, August 9, 2010

Glencoe High School administrators said a Confederate flag that reportedly flew on the school’s flagpole Monday quickly was taken down.

“From my understanding it was not up there but just a few minutes or so,” Principal Charlton Giles said Monday afternoon. “We believe somebody from an opposing school thought it would be funny, so we have taken it down and contacted that school and given them a suspect’s name so they can deal with it.”

Giles declined to name the opposing school he mentioned.
