Summit School District
North Summit High School will transition to online learning beginning Tuesday, November 17 after 11 COVID-19 cases were reported at the school. In-person classes are expected to resume on November 30.

“Although we did not reach the threshold of fifteen cases we decided to temporarily move to remote learning due to the sudden and rapid increase in positive cases. We are choosing this week and next week to go remote because we will only miss six days of in-person school due to the Thanksgiving break. We want the students to be in school as much as possible, but believe this is our best option to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the high school at this time," North Summit Superintendent Jerre Holmes said in a statement sent to FOX 13.
