DOVER — Dover's school board meeting was packed with players Monday night after a recent decision to dismiss five football coaches.
Students and parents united stood up and protested the board's decision to dismiss the coaches.
Superintendent Dr. Elaine Arbour said she made the decision to let go the assistant and volunteer coaches after they were seen buying a six-pack of beer at a gas station on their way home from a game in Keene Oct. 14, according to The Union Leader.
Arbour said in the meeting that she met with the coaches individually and reviewed the school board policies. One of which states alcohol cannot be consumed either on- or off-site when coaches are on duty, the UL reports.
Students at the meeting argued that the coaches did not seem drunk. Some of these students look up to the coaches as parents, and just want to see them back on the team.
Board members were presented an online petition at the meeting, with more than 730 signatures, in order to "free [their] coaches."
The names of the coaches are being withheld due to its' relation to personnel matters.
