WEST JORDAN, Utah — WEST JORDAN, Utah — Copper Hills High School announced Monday night that it will close Tuesday for cleaning and disinfecting after an increase in COVID-19 cases within the school.

"After investigating the circumstances, the Jordan School District Board of Education has determined that it is necessary for Copper Hills High School to close on Tuesday, Sept. 22, for deep cleaning and through disinfecting of the building," the announcement posted on Facebook and on the school's website read.

The cancellation includes classes both in-person and online. Students and parents will not be allowed in the building, but faculty and staff will be permitted to enter if necessary "to quickly gather instructional materials and leave." All school activities will also be canceled.

Virtual parent-teacher conferences will continue as previously scheduled on Tuesday, however.

The school initially said it was closing because it had more than 15 active cases of the virus, and later specified that there were 16.
