JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The American flag at Murrah High School was flying upside down on the flagpole Monday morning.
WJTV reached out to Jackson Public Schools officials to see if there was a reason behind it, or if it was a simple mistake.
School officials said it was just an error.
Below is a statement from Sherwin Johnson, the executive director of public relations for JPS:
“A student mistakenly hung the flag incorrectly this morning after getting it tangled up. This was in no way a symbol of protest to the United States of America.”
WJTV crews were at the school when the flag was removed and put back on the pole correctly.
