LANSINGBURGH — The school district superintendent announced Wednesday he was investigating a hazing incident related to a school in the district but would not reveal details on the nature of the incident, citing legal restrictions on discussing student disciplinary matters.
In a statement Wednesday, superintendent George Goodwin said the district administration “has received allegations of a school-related hazing incident,” and that officials were investigating the matter.
Goodwin said the district would take “appropriate steps to respond,” saying “[A]ny hazing or intimidation of students will not be tolerated and we will take proper disciplinary action if these allegations are true.”
The school’s athletics director tells CBS 6’s Craig Smith three football players were suspended from the team for violating the athletic code of conduct, but would not comment further.
The coach is trying to find out if anything happened at all, he added.
