Update: Mosley H.S. Band Drum Line Suspended Following Incident

Posted: Updated:

At the Bay District School Board meeting on Tuesday afternoon, a Mosley High School Band parent asked the Board to complete a full investigation into an alleged hazing incident at Mosley.

Principal Sandy Harrison told News 13 last week that some of the upperclassmen on the drumline threw mallets and sticks at the freshmen. She said behavior like this is unacceptable.

Band members who were involved in that incident were suspended for ten says.

"It was a case of the tail waggin' the dog, and it was a knee jerk reaction, and it is unfair to the kids whose future are being potentially ruined because they played a prank," said Johnny Walker, a parent.

The School Board didn't comment on the parent's request, but Superintendent Bill Husfelt said he's standing by Principal Harrison's decision.

"Mrs. Harrison and I have talked about this, and I believe she talked with all of the students and did the appropriate things for each student that was involved," said Husfelt.
