DRAPER — Corner Canyon High School will switch to online learning — again — starting Monday as Utah experiences record levels of COVID-19 cases.

The school has 148 students and staff quarantined and 17 active cases, according to the Canyons School District's dashboard. Some 2,200 students attend the school, the dashboard states.

A letter to the school community anticipates students will return to in-person learning on Nov. 30. "We will be watching our numbers closely to determine next steps," the letter states.

Growing numbers of Utah high schools are moving to remote learning until Nov. 30 as cases of COVID-19 climb and numbers of quarantined students and staff increase. Some schools are also reporting increasing difficulty finding enough substitute teachers to cover educators' classes.

This story will be updated.
