In accordance with below attached Presidential Proclamation Governor Noem's Executive Order, Post serviced flags at Way Park and CSD Admin Building flagpoles will be lowered to half-staff at 8:00 am Thursday, 27 May 2021. Flags will be returned to full-staff at local noon, 12:00 pm, Monday, 31 May 2021.

This continuous flag action combines two consecutive flag actions. The first action is directed under 4 USC 10 Presidential discretionary authority. Purpose of that flag action is to mark respect for victims of violence on 26 May 2021, at San Jose, CA. The second action is conducted under 4 USC 7(m) statutory authority. Purpose of that flag action is Memorial Day remembrance. Though Presidential Proclamation and SD Governor’s Executive Order are expected for Memorial Day’s flag action, they are not required.
