Football Investigation Update

Hello Georgetown School Community! What a special week we had this past week with so many special celebrations of learning and accomplishments of our students and educators! It was so nice to see so many families in our schools again celebrating your children and it was truly a wonderful way to end a rather crazy school year. Congratulations to all of our hardworking students and I hope the final week of school before a much needed and well deserved summer vacation will be fun and a chance to end the year on a high note! Next Friday is the last day of school and it is an early release day.


The boys varsity baseball team is playing in the semi-finals of the state tournament. Join me in wishing them well and we are Royally proud of them for their success this season SO FAR!


I am writing to share some information about the status of the football investigation which I promised I would do when I had new information to share.


I know there are many questions and strong feelings about the length and cost of this investigation and no one is more frustrated than me. My plan was to discuss the results of this investigation with the community long before the close of the school year; however, I was recently informed that the report is not expected to be completed and released until June 20th at the earliest. At that time, we will be able to discuss the results but many people have suggested that I address the questions and provide information about the process and the expectations as soon as possible.

Whenever there has been a difficult situation like this, I have held a meeting via zoom or in person at the MHS to discuss it. So that is what I am going to do. I am scheduling a zoom meeting on Wednesday night June 15th from 6:00-7:00 pm. I would only ask that people who attend do so with an open mind and questions will be respectful. This is a chance for me to provide information, clear up some misconceptions and for you to ask me questions that I am able to answer.

in advance of the meeting. I have also attached a copy of the presentation I did for the School Committee for your information as well.


I look forward to seeing you soon and hope you and your children enjoy the rest of the year. I wish you a peaceful, relaxing and fun summer break!
