The recent surge in COVID-19 cases has caused considerable staffing issues in the schools along with many students out sick. The state’s resources are currently overextended with the number of Test-to-Stay events being held and have offered the option for schools to pivot to remote learning for four days as opposed to holding a Test-to-Stay event.
Out of an abundance of caution, all 7th-12th grade schools, except for Dugway School, will have an online school day, Tuesday, January 18. By doing this now we will be able to address the high number of COVID cases we are seeing in our secondary schools while limiting the number of days we are out of class.
The start of our four-day move to remote learning begins January 14 through January 18. Because we have a long weekend, (no school Friday and Monday), we will be limiting the number of days we are online to one day, Tuesday, January 18.
When students return to school Wednesday, January 19, we ask everyone to wear a mask for the remainder of the week, until Friday, January 21.
January 14-18 school building access will be limited to necessary faculty and staff. This will allow custodians an opportunity to clean and disinfect the buildings.
Any changes to activities/games/practices will be communicated through the school’s administration or coaches.
Administrators and teachers will be reaching out to families and students with school-specific information.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
Tooele County School District
