VERNAL, Utah, Dec. 1, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) – Uintah High School students have been given the opportunity to switch to online learning after a surge in COVID-19 cases.
“To date, December 1, there have been 14 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Uintah High School in the past 14 days,” said a press release from the Uintah School District. “The Utah Department of Health recommends that schools move to distance learning for a two-week period if they have 15 confirmed cases within 14 days.”
District and school leaders continue to work closely together to keep school officials informed of the situation in Uintah High, the press release said.
“The district has options in its school reopening plan to reduce in-person visits to its schools to 50 or 25 percent and go fully online when needed,” the press release added. “All options are currently being examined.”
Uintah High students have the option to attend classes in person or remotely through December 14, as announced on Sunday evening.
