ENOSBURG, Vt. (WCAX) - More alleged racial slurs at a local high school game had stands mostly empty and school administrators investigating.

In a letter to parents, Enosburg school leaders say alleged racist comments were made during a game against Middlebury Tuesday. That prompted school officials to have reserved seating for only immediate family members for Wednesday’s JV girls basketball game. School leaders say there’s no reason to believe the allegations are false, and they’re looking into who said what.

This is similar to a situation that took place last October where there were allegations of racial slurs being used during a boys soccer game against Winooski. That prompted the Vermont Principals Association to institute a new policy for bias at high school games.

We reached out to school officials who were not immediately available to comment.
