Piute School District, Murray High School moving to online learning Monday

SALT LAKE CITY — Murray High School and Piute County School District schools both announced Sunday evening that students will move to online learning starting Monday for the next two weeks.

The news comes after the schools have reached the 15-case threshold for COVID-19. Murray High School plans on holding in-person classes on Monday, Oct. 19, and Piute schools plan on returning on Wednesday, Oct. 21.

“Over 60 Piute High School students were absent on Friday October 2nd for quarantines, isolations, and other illnesses,” read a statement from the district. “The high school has had difficulty finding enough substitutes to fill in for all the teachers and staff that have either been quarantined or requested leave for illness.”

Some Piute groups and one-on-one tutoring may still be provided in person at the school buildings. More specific instructions for digital learning will be provided by each individual school within the district.
