NATICK – Natick High School will be fully remote for at least two weeks, after students attended parties.
“What will be disrupted is the hoped-for return to athletics, theater, and robotics club activity –all the activities that could not successfully be run in a virtual environment. Due to the potential exposures described above, we will ask the school committee to require that all extracurricular clubs be held virtually, and that no athletic play or practices occur,” said the public school district in a statement.
The public school district said tudents who were required to quarantine due to exposure instead attended or hosted parties with numerous students over the past two weekends, despite Natick Board of Health’s request for quarantine.
Families and students have not been forthcoming about attendees, so the district said the Natick Board of Health and the Natick Public Schools were left no choice but to move to remote learning for a two-week quarantine period.
