STONEHAM, MA — Stoneham High School transitioned to a remote learning model Friday after four students tested positive for COVID-19. Stoneham Superintendent John Macero said the school will remain remote for about two weeks, with a tentative return date set for Monday, Nov. 30.

Macero said the confirmed cases required a "significant portion" of students and staff to be quarantined.

"While we cannot confirm in-school transmission occurred, two of the positive cases may be related," Macero said. "In addition, we have many community members awaiting test results."

The remainder of the fall high school sports season was canceled as well. Students are urged to follow the public health recommendations for preventing the spread of COVID-19 while at home, including social distancing, mask wearing and hand-washing.
