ROY, Utah — A school administrator at Roy High School has tested positive for COVID-19, prompting the school district to bring in a "substitute team" to act as proxy administrators for the school.

According to a news release from the Weber School District, the Weber-Morgan Health Department placed three of Roy High's other administrators under quarantine due to their direct exposure to the administrator who tested positive for the disease. The administrators will be under quarantine through September 25.

"We believe that the administrator who tested positive for COVID-19 was exposed outside of the school setting. A very thorough contact tracing process has been facilitated to identify all possible employees and/or students who may have been exposed at Roy High School. At this point, only the administrative team members have been identified as needing to isolate/quarantine," the news release said.

In the meantime, Clyde Moore, Weber School District's supervisor of secondary education, will act as Roy High's lead administrator. Bryce Ballif and Kristy Haws, who are both principals at other high schools in the district, will support Moore as temporary administrators at Roy High.

"This proxy administrative team will work hard to keep current safety measures and a stable learning environment in place," the news release said.
