But in a statement sent to students and staff on Monday and obtained by WDAF, Blue Valley High School principal Charles Golden said he was reaching out to them with “extremely upsetting news.”

“This morning we learned the Blue Valley High School football stadium and press box were vandalized overnight,” he said. “The vandalism includes the destruction of property, graphic images and vulgar and racially offensive language. Hate like this has no place at Blue Valley high and is not representative of our Tiger community.”
