Wouldn't they need to be legal and/or a US citizen to be enrolled as a student at this school? If not, someone isn't doing their paperwork properly.
I work in a college here in the UK and if a "foreigner" wants to enrol, they have to provide evidence that they are eligable.
If they are illegal, then who cares about their feelings? They shouldn't be in the country in the first place!
If there is a reasonably predictable likelihood (not just a bare conjecture) that speech or expressive conduct will cause substantial disruption — which is not clear under these facts — then the school may legally restrict it without violating the First Amendment. That’s the holding of Tinker v. Des Moines Indep. Community School Dist. (1969).
After an evidentiary hearing the District Court dismissed the complaint. It upheld the constitutionality of the school authorities' action on the ground that it was reasonable in order to prevent disturbance of school discipline.

trust me, illegals are not your problem. there's way more dangerous enemies in DC. and they WILL steal the land and all your freedoms your forefathers fought for while you complain about the illegals.

If the situation was such that they were fearful that the wearing of an American flag on a public school in this country would cause violence on Cinco de Mayo then the appropriate response would have been to cancel the Cinco de Mayo celebration.
