Tamaqua Area Superintendent Raymond Kinder released a statement Monday regarding an alleged “incident” involving the football team.

The “incident” is also being referred to as a “student disciplinary matter” but no other details are provided.

Tamaqua has remained tight-lipped about the nature of the incident and the investigation so far. Despite that, you can find more than a few theories about what allegedly happened on Facebook.

The school was set to take on North Schuylkill over the weekend, but on Friday the District XI playoff game was canceled with Tamaqua forfeiting when it was revealed that an “incident” had occurred.

“Since the evening of Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021, members of the Tamaqua Area administration, school police force, and Tamaqua Police Department have been conducting an investigation into an incident involving members of the school’s football team,” Kinder writes in his statement. “This has continued throughout the weekend and into this week. We have been taking appropriate measures identified under school policies, procedures, and law.”

Kinder also says that because it’s an “incident” involving children, whatever information is released will be limited.

“Due to the ongoing nature of this investigation regarding a student disciplinary matter of a juvenile nature, we are only permitted to share limited information,” Kinder continues. “We aske that you respect this as we continue our process.”
