Bonneville High School in Washington Terrace will move classes online starting Thursday after an outbreak at the school.
A statement from the Weber School District said it is following Utah Department of Health instructions after 15 or more individuals connected with the Washington Terrace school tested positive within the past two weeks. Multiple classrooms have been affected, it said.
The school will hold virtual classes through Nov. 11, during which time the school will undergo a deep cleaning. Only those who tested positive and the people they came in contact with will be required to quarantine.
In addition, the volleyball and football teams, which have no active cases of coronavirus, will be allowed to continue to compete. Other extracurricular activities will be allowed on a case-by-case basis.
The district site shows 70 active cases of COVID-19 as of Friday, including 54 at the secondary level.
Bonneville’s turn to online schooling comes one day after Granite School District’s Olympus and Taylorsville high schools announced they are going remote after exceeding 15 cases apiece.
This is the second Weber School District school to have to go online this year. Roy High returned to in-person classes Wednesday after a two-week quarantine.
