FALMOUTH, Mass. — Falmouth High School is teaching remote on Monday after some students partied over the weekend without wearing masks and social distancing, according to FHS principal Mary Gans.

“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 in a letter addressed to high school faculty, staff, students and families on Sunday.

“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,” she continued.

Falmouth High School will be fully remote on Monday while officials “continue to investigate the extent of this party and its connection to the high school,” Gans wrote.

She said there will be no marching band rehearsal or athletic practices on Monday.

Gans added that more information on everyone’s return to school will be shared on Monday.
