A Blue Springs High School student allegedly displayed a Confederate flag on school grounds Wednesday, and it prompted BSHS principal Dave Adams to address the incident to parents.

An email was sent to parents by Adams informing them of the Confederate flag display. It said:

“A student displayed a Confederate Flag at school yesterday. That incident was addressed immediately. Rumors, which we have not found to be credible, have swirled around social media regarding the possibility of conflict related to this incident. We plan to have a normal day of school tomorrow with a heightened awareness of potential issues related to this situation and wanted you to be aware.”
