Cooper H.S. Assistant Girls Hockey Coach Detained And Under Investigation

This letter was sent to parents of Cooper High School students December 6:

Dear families of Robbinsdale Cooper High School students,

New Hope Police have notified us that an assistant girls’ hockey coach for Robbinsdale Cooper High School has been detained and is under investigation for inappropriate behavior.

The coach’s name will not be released until he is charged, most likely on Friday. Because of the seriousness of the allegations, the coach, who is not a teacher in the district, has been removed from coaching.

Educating students in a safe environment is the primary concern of Robbinsdale Area Schools. All employees, including coaches, are screened by criminal background check.

The New Hope Police Department recommends that parents speak with children about their contact with adults. If you feel that there has been any inappropriate behavior of any adults with your student, please call the New Hope Police Department at 763-531-5144.

We understand and regret the anxiety that this alleged behavior may create for you and your family. We will provide you with updated information as it becomes available. If you have any comments and questions regarding this matter please contact me at 763-504-8501.
