SANDY, Utah – Parents and students at both Alta High School and Brighton High School were told that following a sustained increase in COVID-19 cases in the school community, starting Wednesday, they will transition to online learning for 14 days

“The pause in on-campus learning was determined to be in the best interest of students, families and staff,” administrators said in an email.

On Wednesday, students will not have classes, and teachers will use the day to prepare for online instruction.

“More information about online learning expectations will be forthcoming from the school and individual teachers. Lessons and assignments will be communicated using Canvas, CSD’s learning management system,” according to the email.

Online instruction will begin Thursday, Sept. 24.

“It’s hoped that in-person instruction can resume on Oct. 12, 2020.  In the meantime, the building will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized,” the email read.

The email also addressed activities. It read:

“Utah High School Activities Association-sponsored activities can continue as planned as long as there have not been three or more positive cases within a two-week period on one sports team or performing group and required health precautions are taken.”
