ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The Clyde-Savannah Central School District has postponed their next Board of Education meeting, which was scheduled for Wednesday night.
In a letter to families, Superintendent Michael Hayden said the change in date was “at the request of law enforcement.”
Last Thursday, a letter from Superintendent Hayden announced the Clyde-Savannah Varsity Football team’s season was cut short due to an incident that led to “disciplinary actions.”
The incident turned into a police investigation, with the Village of Clyde’s Board of Trustees released a statement Tuesday expressing their surprise and disappointment with the accusations and events. They added that no information will be released at this time, as the Clyde Police Department continues to investigate.
The Clyde Village Police Department issued the following statement regarding the postponement:
Clyde Village Police Department is continuing our investigation of the incident at Clyde-Savannah School. Holding a school board meeting may encourage misinformation and create rumors. The school board cannot answer questions at this time due to an active criminal investigation. Clyde PD is working in conjunction with the Wayne County District Attorney’s office, The New York State Police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department in this investigation.Clyde Village Police Department
The meeting has been rescheduled for Wednesday, November 15 at 7 p.m.
