Message From the Chief
Monomoy Regional High School was dismissed early on May 27 after police received a bomb threat. It was later determined to be a hoax.
“In the past week, I’ve had quite a few conversations with school officials, school committee, and parents,” said Wellfleet Police Chief Michael Hurley at the start of the select board meeting on May 31. Hurley’s son goes to Monomoy High.
“My first reaction was to go there,” Hurley said of hearing the news of the threat. But, he continued, he knew it was better to stay away and let them do their job.
“The message tonight is that your police department is well trained,” he said. “We have trained officers to deal with the issues head on, immediately.” He had also posted a statement on the town’s website outlining his dept.’s recent training.
A Smaller Quorum
The select board voted at its June 7 meeting to reduce the quorum for the annual town meeting on June 11 from 182 voters to 100.
Town meeting will be held outdoors at the Wellfleet Elementary School ballfield. It will get underway at 10 a.m., with check-in starting at 9 a.m. The parking spaces facing the ballfield are reserved for handicapped parking.
A list of symptoms of Covid-19 will be posted near the check-in line. Town staff are asking that anyone who has any of the listed symptoms, such as a fever, stay home for the safety of fellow voters. Children may attend the meeting but must stay with their parents. At the end of the meeting, a drawing will be held for five beach stickers. Voters must be present to be eligible for the drawing. —Michaela Chesin
