FARMINGTON, Utah — Farmington High School will move to remote learning after the school recorded 15 positive COVID-19 cases over the last 14 days.

The school will be closed to in-person learning starting Wednesday and remain closed until Wednesday, Nov. 4. Students will not begin remote classes until Thursday to give teachers time to prepare remote lessons.

Sporting events involving Farmington High School teams will continue unless three or more members test positive for the virus.

"We thank you for your patience and support during this time as we work together to reduce the current spike in cases and keep students and staff as safe as possible." the Davis School District said in a statement. "We also strongly encourage proper washing of hands, the use of face coverings, the practice of physical distancing, keeping students home when they are sick and the continual effort to clean and disinfect as ways to slow the spread of the virus."

Breakfast and lunch will continue to be provided even while the school is closed. Students and parents are welcome to pick up their meals between 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. at the school.
