ROY, Utah – Officials with the Weber School District said Roy High School will move to online learning for two weeks after a COVID-19 outbreak was reported at the school.

“In consultation with officials at the Weber-Morgan Health Department, Roy High School will be closed beginning (Wednesday),” district officials said. “Currently, 15 or more students have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past two weeks and multiple classrooms have been affected.”

As of Friday, there were 33 active COVID-19 cases in the Weber School District. Over 500 students and 81 faculty members were in quarantine.

In-person instruction will resume on Wednesday, Oct. 28.

“During the closure, all instruction will be delivered online using our short-term flexible learning model,” officials said. “The building will also be disinfected and sanitized according to our Safe Weber Framework.”

Last week, the school’s football team was quarantined after health officials reported an outbreak among players.

“We would like to remind everyone to continue to be vigilant in following current health guidelines by wearing face coverings, practicing good hygiene and physically distancing from others to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” officials said.
