Robert E. Lee high school votes to ban the Confederate flag from uniforms and activities sponsored by the school beginning in the fall. “We are not going to suspend students if they have it on a T-shirt or backpack; that’s an individual choice,” said Lee Principal Bill Fish. “But as an institution, we are not going to use it.  We’ve been trying to do this gradually over time,” he said, adding that new football uniforms have been ordered without the flag to replace old ones.
