PLEASANT GROVE, Utah – Some students in the Alpine School District are staying home from school Tuesday after a sudden increase in COVID-19 cases.
A total of 41 students and 26 employees tested positive for the virus district-wide on Monday.
Pleasant Grove High School is currently considered a hot spot. As a result, the high school will be closed for two days as officials prepare to move to a hybrid schedule by Thursday.
District officials said they will not be identifying the exact number of cases at PGHS.
The modified schedule means students whose last names start with the letters A-K will attend A-day classes on Thursday and B-day classes on Friday. After Labor Day, L-Z students start A-day classes on Tuesday and B-day classes on Wednesday. Classes will be face-to-face.
COVID-19 testing tents will be available for anyone in the community who wants to get tested – even if they don’t have symptoms. The mobile testing center will be in the parking lot at the swimming pool, 582 E. 300 South.
The testing hours will be Wednesday from 2:30 – 6:30 p.m. and Thursday from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m.
