Earlier this evening, the Salt Lake County Health Department identified potential exposure of COVID-19 at Hunter High School in West Valley City. Thereafter, they directed us as follows:
- Hunter High School staff, students, should quarantine at home until March 27, 2020 and monitor themselves for symptoms throughout that time. Symptoms of COVID-19 include cough, fever over 100° F, and shortness of breath.
- Hunter High School will change from a two-week dismissal, to a two-week closure. CAMPUS WILL BE COMPLETELY CLOSED as we work to sanitize the facilities. Instruction will NOT continue at this time. Rather, school leadership and local health officers will re-evaluate the situation in two weeks, and take the appropriate next steps that will best serve the school community.
NOTE: Only Hunter High School has been impacted at this time. All other schools within Granite School District will continue forward with their respective two-week dismissal plans.
Employees and individuals who are not regularly assigned to Hunter High School but may have visited the facility recently are encouraged to follow general health department guidelines and recommendations for self-care, but are not under the self-quarantine order.
We urge all members of our Granite District community to take the recommendations from the Health Department very seriously; we must ALL do our best to reduce potential spread.
