PMHS students who failed to follow Covid protocols by partying asked to self-quarantine


Pelham Memorial High School

“If you attended this party you are expected to quarantine for 10 days,” said PMHS Principal Mark Berkowitz in an email following reports of a party with 15-30 PMHS students.

The email specified that the party was attended across grades and indoors, “with students who were not wearing masks or social distancing.”

This specifically violates New York State Covid-19 protocol which specifies, “Indoor and outdoor gatherings statewide at private residences will be limited to no more than 10 people.”

Berkowitz went on to remind students to review the recent email regarding updates to quarantine guidelines from the Department of Health as well as health and safety expectations for all PMHS students.
