FALMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - Falmouth High School switched to full remote learning on Monday after the principal says students attended a party without practicing social distancing over the weekend.
Students learned from home while school officials investigate the extent of the party in Woods Hole, Principal Mary Whalen Gans said in a letter to the community.
“Like other high schools in Massachusetts, Falmouth High School has now been impacted by the decisions of some of our students who have been officially confirmed to have attended a party this weekend,” she said.
Marching band rehearsal and athletics practices have also been canceled for Monday.
“I am profoundly disappointed that Falmouth High School students would put our school community at risk during a public health crisis, especially after all of the hard work and planning we have done to ensure that the school year would start off safe and healthy for all,” Whalen Gans continued.
After conducting an investigation, school officials concluded that it’s safe to resume in-person learning on Tuesday.
“We have no evidence of any positive COVID-19 cases,” Falmouth Public Schools wrote in Facebook post.
