How come there is no flag or flag pole in front of New York Elementary School? Are there plans to putting one there? All the other schools in Lawrence have flagpoles with flags on them.
"New York Elementary has a flag pole, but it is not presently in use because of mechanical problems with the rope system. The school district is purchasing, and will be installing, a new flag pole there," said Tom Bracciano, division director of operations and facilities planning for the Lawrence school district.
