Statement of the Andover School Committee
ANDOVER — The Andover School Committee releases the following statement:
“We have been briefed on an incident involving the Andover High School boys varsity hockey team. Our understanding is that the Department of Children and Families is conducting an investigation into alleged coaching practices that would violate the rules of our school district and would not be in the best interests of the students.
“We have the utmost confidence in DCF and in High School Principal Philip Conrad, Athletic Director Bill Martin, and Superintendent Sheldon Berman to conduct full, impartial reviews and present the facts to the public. Until then, we will reserve further comment on this matter, except to reiterate that the Andover Public Schools will cooperate fully in the ongoing investigation and that the health, safety, and wellness of our students and student athletes should be above all else.”
