The town is building a new high school, so past students were invited back Tuesday before everything gets demolished.

The district says when that happened, thousands of dollars of equipment disappeared, including football helmets and field hockey jerseys.

As a result, the season for 10 different sports teams is currently threatened.

Nearly 400 people attended the alumni event, according to police.

The building permanently closed on June 12, and will be torn down this summer. The new facility is expected to open in the fall.
