All athletics tryouts and practices at Salish Secondary School have been suspended.
Salish Secondary Athletics announced via Instagram Nov. 19 that nothing would go ahead until a new code of conduct was written up.
“They will remain on hold until a new Salish Athletic Handbook Code of Conduct has been put in place,” the account noted. “Thank you for your patience.”
There was no word from the school whether or not scheduled games would go ahead for teams that were already formed and already playing games.
Athletic director Allen De La Paz still had not replied to the Reporter as of Nov. 22, despite repeated phone calls and emails.
A Salish Secondary School parent wrote an email to thank the Reporter for its minimal coverage of the incident as they have kids in athletics at the school and had no idea what was going on.
“It was strange how the news was posted on instagram and that we didn’t receive an email to parents informing us of what was happening, and why, with athletics,” wrote the parent, who is employed by the Surrey School District and asked to remain anonymous.
