Snowcrest Junior High Moving Online After One-Third Of Students Quarantined
EDEN, Utah – An outbreak of COVID-19 cases at Snowcrest Jr. High School in Eden has forced school officials to move classes online after nearly 100 of the school’s students were ordered to quarantine.
A news release said a combination of six students and teachers have tested positive for the virus, and about one-third of all students have been quarantined as a precaution. About a third of the school’s staff is also in quarantine.
The administration determined the limited staffing made it difficult to continue classes at the school.
The release emphasized the entire school is not under quarantine, only those who have been directly exposed to a person who tested positive.
Snowcrest will begin online instruction Tuesday. It will end Friday, Nov. 20, with students returning to in-person learning on Nov. 23.
While closed, the building will go through a deep cleaning process to disinfect and sanitize it.
Snowcrest is the fourth school in the Weber School District to pivot to online learning.
Roy High School returned to classroom instruction in late October. Bonneville High School returns to classroom instruction on Thursday and Weber High returns on Nov. 19.
Syracuse High School in the Davis School District also returns to classroom learning on Nov. 19.
