Party Triggers Remote Schooling At Falmouth High

Falmouth High School is operating in a remote learning mode on Monday, as officials look into a weekend party.

Principal Mary Whalen Gans wrote in a message to faculty, staff and families that she was "reaching out to share the news that 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 in Woods Hole while not wearing masks and not practicing physical distancing."

Marching band rehearsal and sports practices scheduled for Monday were also canceled.

"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," Gans wrote.
