North Carroll Students to Participate in Flag Relay Ceremony
Release Date: 6/2/2009 3:00:07 PM
North Carroll students and staff are preparing to celebrate the opening of Manchester Valley High School and the “New” North Carroll High School with a special ceremony on Friday, June 12, 2009, at 10:15 a.m.
During the ceremony, the Manchester Valley flag will be lowered and carried in a relay from North Carroll High School to its new site. This activity will be symbolic of the connection between both high schools and will be an appropriate way to show students in each school mutual respect and excitement for next year’s changes. Members of the community are invited to take part in the ceremony.
Several teachers and students will be using the unfinished bypass and sidewalks to carry the flag on the rest of its three-mile journey. The school appreciates the full cooperation of the Manchester Police, Hampstead Police, Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, and the Maryland State Police, who will serve as escorts along the route.
