OGDEN, Utah — In a release sent to parents and students on Wednesday, Fremont High School announced the school will be closed for two weeks and students will be moving to online learning starting Friday, November 20.

Over 200 individuals associated with the school have been quarantined because of 16 current COVID-19 cases.

Students will begin their at-home virtual learning on Friday and are expected to return back to in-person school on December 3.

The school says that during the closure, students will be working at their own pace to complete assignments and that teachers will be available every day for any questions or tutoring.

Thursday will be a teacher preparation day to allow staff to get ready for the transition. If students need access to the building to retrieve school supplies or personal items, the building will be open after 9:30 on Thursday morning.

During the closure, the school will be thoroughly sanitized.

The school also reminded parents and students that they are not required to quarantine if they haven't been contacted by the school.

If an individual associated with the school tests positive for COVID-19 in the weeks during virtual learning, the school asks that the individual still reports the positive test to them for tracking purposes.
