UTAH (ABC4) – After multiple Utah school districts switched to remote learning as a result of COVID-19 and the contagiousness of the Omicron variant, high schools throughout the state are returning to in-person learning.
An order issued by Gov. Spencer Cox on Jan. 13 allowed schools to provide remote learning in an effort to curb the continuing outbreak of COVID-19 infections.
“The goal of remote learning is to continue educating students while keeping them physically separate from one another,” officials say. “This gives schools a chance to slow the spread of the virus as the COVID-19 omicron variant has added an additional challenge in this pandemic.”
As of Monday, Jan. 24, the following school districts have returned to in-person learning:
- Canyons School District
- Davis School District
- Salt Lake City School District
- Granite School District
- Alpine School District
- Weber School District
- Jordan School District
- Box Elder School District
