Overcrowded parties have forced several high schools to go back to online learning in hopes of staving off Covid-19 outbreaks.

Although the states' numbers are promising, experts have warned that people attending large gatherings are a serious threat to managing the spread of the virus that has infected more than 6. 5 million and killed 194,536 people in the US.

A crowded student party "that involved alcohol and complete lack of safety precautions" pushed Lincoln-Sudbury High School outside of Boston to go back to remote learning the first two weeks of school, a letter from the superintendent said.

And Pelham High School in Westchester, New York, has also extended online learning after two nights in a row of students partying in the woods, the school district announced.

The president of the United Federation of Teachers said Monday that New York City is "not making the grade" when it comes to enacting the safety measures needed to reopen schools for in-person learning.

And though students in the Los Angeles Unified School District are still learning remotely, a "report card" will show the number of cases in each school as part of the district's testing and tracing endeavor, superintendent Austin Beutner said Monday.
