We hope this message finds you well. We regret to inform you that today’s scheduled middle school boys and girls basketball games have been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. Unfortunately, we have encountered a shortage of available referees for the game this afternoon, and regrettably, we are unable to proceed with the match as planned. We understand the disappointment this may cause, especially for our young athletes who have been looking forward to showcasing their skills on the court. Please reassure your children that we are actively working to ensure future games proceed smoothly without such interruptions. In light of this situation, we would like to extend an invitation to interested parents or community members who may have an interest in becoming referees for the NMAA’s sporting events. Your participation and support in this capacity would significantly contribute to the successful continuation of athletic programs around the area. If you or someone you know possesses the skills and enthusiasm to become a referee, we encourage you to apply to become a referee. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation and sincerely appreciate your understanding and continued support of our school’s athletic program. We are committed to providing our students with the best possible sports experiences and will make every effort to prevent such disruptions in the future.

Thank you for your understanding, JMSD
