Dear Haxtun Community,
It has been brought to my attention that a couple of fans displayed poor sportsmanship on Saturday, November 18, 2023, and as the Superintendent of Haxtun School District, I want to personally extend my sincere apologies on behalf of Haxtun School District for any negative experiences this may have caused. In addition, I have sent an apology to the Simla community to their superintendent as well.
At Haxtun School District, we strive to instill the values of respect, sportsmanship, and unity within our school community, which our community desires for our young people to demonstrate. The actions of a couple of individuals at the state playoff game did not align with these values, and for that, I am truly sorry. It is disheartening to see behavior that goes against the strong character our community is working hard to instill in our students and demonstrate to others.
Sporting events are meant to be occasions that foster healthy competition and mutual respect among participants and spectators alike. It is disheartening to learn that the actions of a few individuals have tarnished the spirit of sportsmanship that we strive to uphold.
I want to assure you that we take this matter very seriously. Appropriate action will be taken to address the issue and prevent such incidents from happening in the future. We are working to reinforce the importance of good sportsmanship with our students, parents, and community members to ensure that everyone understands the impact of their behavior on the overall experience of these events.
As a school district, we value the relationships we have with neighboring communities, and we are committed to fostering an atmosphere of respect and cooperation wherever we go.
We appreciate your continued support and commitment to the positive values that define Haxtun School District.
Superintendent, Haxtun School District Re-2J
