The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the board office in Huntsville. Comments from the from the public will be permitted.
The school system posted about the event on its social media pages.
“On two separate occasions, a large number of students in the open area on the south end of the stadium began running and causing a major disruption,” the post read. “Out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to clear the stadium and suspend the game.
“This incident will be thoroughly investigated, and proper action will be taken.”
They also stressed that there were no weapons of any kind involved in the mayhem.
“There were NO weapons used or shown during the incident,” the school system said. “We can also share that there were NO physical altercations or injuries.”
MCSS said that incident was “caused by individuals who wanted to strike fear in the crowd.”
