Thank you note to our Field Hockey and Soccer teams from the Georgetown Senior Community Center for their food drive.

Dear Teams,

Thank you so much for delivering all of the wonderful food gathered by the Girls and Boys Soccer and Field Hockey teams during their senior games to the Georgetown Senior Community Center yesterday.  The donations to the Council on Aging Marketplace (food pantry) are much appreciated and will be well shared within the community.

During the last fiscal year, 62 individuals visited or received 221 deliveries from the COA Marketplace, a more than 50 percent increase than the previous year.  The on-going pandemic has impacted older adults in a number of ways but food insecurity has increased in our area during this time.  The COA Marketplace bridges some of that gap for many people and the food donations gathered by the student athletes will help to further that work in the community.

We send our thanks to the many student athletes and family members involved in gathering the food donations. These donations will have a real and tangible impact on many lives.

Best regards,

Colleen

Statement from Carol Jacobs, Superintendent, Georgetown Public Schools

In light of these serious claims raised by the Roxbury Prep football coaching staff after last Friday night’s football game we have engaged a lawyer experienced in these matters to conduct an investigation, which is ongoing.  I have informed Roxbury Prep that we are taking these allegations very seriously and that an investigation is underway to determine the facts.  We will not comment on the investigation until it is concluded.

The most fundamental mission and duty of our schools is to ensure a safe environment for our students, faculty, staff, families, and visitors. Tonight we welcome a football team from Lynn. We expect an organized and spirited football game this evening.  In order to support those goals we are limiting attendance to parents, keeping benches clear of spectators, and increasing police presence. We are expecting a high level of cooperation from everyone in attendance.

Statement concerning an incident at the September 18th football game.

On Friday night September 18, 2021, there was a physical altercation during the football game between Georgetown and Roxbury Prep Charter High School that involved players from both teams and several coaches.  The cause of this altercation is under investigation. The Georgetown Police assisted in dispersing the crowds when the end of the game was canceled. Allegations of the use of racially charged language are also being investigated. I want to clearly state that the Georgetown Public Schools will not tolerate racism in any form and is working with the Georgetown Police Department to investigate this allegation. The district has reached out to the administration at Roxbury Prep Charter High School in an attempt to gather facts and resolve the issues.  There are clearly strong emotions and many different versions of what happened at this game that is swirling around on social media. I ask for calm and patience as we investigate this situation and arrive at a resolution that considers all of the facts and is satisfactory to all parties involved.
