FLINT, Mich. (WNEM) - The Hamady homecoming events have been postponed due to what its superintendent calls “safety concerns.”

The school made the announcement on Friday, Sept. 22 at 1:30 p.m. in a Facebook post, which was made on behalf of Superintendent Leslie Key.

Hamady Middle/High School said the homecoming parade, football game, and the dance on Saturday, Sept. 23 have been postponed due to safety concerns.

The decision was made by law enforcement, Beecher Community Schools, and Westwood Heights Schools, the school said.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. We appreciate your support in keeping our students, staff and community safe,” the school said.

The school also said new times and dates for the homecoming events will be announced at a later date.

Jamal Bransford, the public relations representative for Westwood Heights Schools, said the postponement was made out of an abundance of caution for the community.

He said the Facebook post was the official statement made by the school and there is no other information to share.
