SLC School District Votes To Resume In-Person Classes For Secondary Students
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Members of the Salt Lake City school board voted to allow in-person classes to resume for secondary students.
Middle and high school students can return to the classroom beginning Feb. 8; elementary school students were previously approved to resume in-person classes next week.
Sorry, they get the option* to return to in person learning. No one is forced. Right now, it’s a proposed hybrid style model.

The decision for secondary students was postponed several times, causing months of delays for parents awaiting the answer.
Last month, a group of parents sued the district to force officials to reopen classrooms. A hearing for that lawsuit took place Tuesday, but the judge did not reach a decision.
Superintendent Larry Madden proposed a hybrid model that would have students in the classroom only a few days a week. Students will be allowed to choose to attend in-person or remain remote on a class-by-class basis.
This proposal came after district officials said 850 teachers were vaccinated last week, and 300 more are expected to get the vaccine this week.
