No School: Memorial Day – May 27, 2024

Discovery Prep will be closed on Monday, May 27, 2024. 

Memorial Day is a public school holiday per California Education Code Section 37220. It is also a state holiday per California Government Code Section 6700. 

Every Memorial Day, the U.S. flag is quickly raised to the tops of flagpoles, slowly lowered to half-mast, and then raised again to full height at noon. The time at half-mast is meant to honor the million-plus fallen U.S. soldiers who have died for their country over the years. Re-raising the flag is meant to symbolize the resolve of the living to carry on the fight for freedom so that the nation’s heroes will not have died in vain.
