BARNSTABLE, Mass. — The principal of Barnstable High School has been placed on leave by the superintendent, but no reason has been given for the move.

Superintendent Meg Mayo-Brown announced the decision in a letter sent to parents.

“Let me begin by thanking you for your understanding and patience throughout the past weeks. As we transition BHS to hybrid, in-person learning this week, schedules will continue to settle and students and educators will continue to build relationships and engage in robust, rigorous learning opportunities,” Mayo-Brown wrote. “I also want to inform you that Principal Clark is on a leave.”
