SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Alpine School District officials on Wednesday announced three additional high schools will begin hybrid schedules following a spike in COVID-19 cases in Utah County.

According to ASD public information officer Kimberly Bird, Lone Peak, Orem, and American Fork high schools will begin hybrid schedules next week.

Those schools will be closed Friday so teachers can prepare for the new schedule. Officials said the buildings will be deep cleaned through the weekend.

Bird said the district is making the schedule adjustments because a similar plan has worked for Pleasant Grove. They said they want to slow the spread as much as possible, and they will slowly implement the schdule changes as needed.

The changes came a day after state health officials announced Provo and Orem would be moving from low-risk to moderate-risk levels, and on the same day a county-wide mask mandate went into place.

Other school districts have also made changes due to increasing COVID-19 cases, including Alta and Brighton high schools, which transitioned to online learning for a two-week period beginning Wednesday.
