ROY — Roy High School will be going online again due to rising COVID-19 cases, after students returned to in-person classes on Oct. 28.
Weber School District announced on Friday that after consulting with officials at the Weber-Morgan Health Department, Roy High, located at 2150 W. 4800 South, will transition to online learning for two weeks.
Students will begin remote learning on Nov. 23, then return to in-person instruction on Dec. 7. During the closure, the building will also be disinfected and sanitized, according to the district.
There are 18 active cases at the school, six of which were reported to the district today by the Weber-Morgan Health Department, district officials said.
"We are continuing to see a significant rise in the number of COVID-19 cases throughout Weber School District," said Weber School District community relations & safety specialist Lane Findlay. "Although transmission of the virus appears to be relatively low within the school environment, it is becoming prevalent in our communities."
The school previously closed in-person classes on Oct. 14 after an outbreak of COVID-19 occurred, with students returning from remote learning on Oct. 28.
