MURRAY, Utah — Murray High School will be shifting to online learning for two weeks starting Monday after reaching the district-protocol threshold of 15 COVID-19 cases.

The Murray School District announced Sunday night that it will evaluate the conditions over those two weeks, the school will undergo deep sanitation, and it will "hopefully" return to in-person classes Oct. 19.

The school will continue to follow its usual A/B schedule during these two weeks.

Extracurricular activities will continue as planned, the district said.

School meals will still be provided to students via curbside pickup. Lunch, along with the following day's breakfast, can be picked up at the "East road by commons" during the following periods:

  • 1st lunch: 10:49-11:19 a.m.
  • 2nd lunch: 12:06-12:36 p.m.

Those picking up meals are advised to drive in from north to south.

"We want to reassure you that our school staff and teachers have been working hard to provide a safe environment for our students, however, while we continue to do everything we can at our school, we need your help and support to ensure our students and staff can remain healthy and stay safe," the district wrote. "Please make sure your family is adhering to the countywide health order to avoid large group gatherings and wearing a mask in public, especially when social distancing is not possible."
