The Owls' football team will now be playing on Monday night after a "verbal altercation" at the school this morning canceled the Friday game.
Dundalk's homecoming varsity football game against Towson will instead be held Monday, Oct. 4 at 4 p.m. at Dundalk High, and the junior varsity game is canceled, according to a new letter sent to parents on Friday, after originally rescheduling the game to Saturday morning and moving it to CCBC Essex.
In the letter, Dundalk Principal Larissa Santos said that this morning, "a group of students were engaged in a serious verbal altercation," which police de-escalated.
"We believe this incident was a result of an ongoing community dispute and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone today’s Homecoming activities, including this evening’s Varsity football game," Santos said in the letter.
Homecoming dances and indoor pep rallies had already been canceled for all Baltimore County Public Schools earlier this month due to COVID-19 concerns.
