Woodruff High School students in South Carolina were forced to remove American flags from their vehicles on September 11. Principal Aaron Fulmer said the US flags violated school policy.
WSPA reported:

On Your Side was contacted by several upset parents who say Woodruff High School students were made to take down American flags from their vehicles on September 11.

Spartanburg District 4 Superintendent Rallie Liston said four students arrived at the school Thursday morning with U.S. flags propped up on poles in their pickup truck beds.

The school’s principal, Aaron Fulmer, confiscated the flags because he said it is against district policy to “draw attention” to one’s vehicle.

The flags were returned to the students at the end of the day.

The students were not punished.

Fulmer tells us officials are meeting with student council next week to look into a possible policy revision.

Parents have contacted us to let us know about a protest that is being planned in response to the flag removal. It is set for Monday morning.
