At a meeting by the Jordan School District held this evening, Wednesday, November 11, 2020, at 5 p.m officials with the Jordan School District voted to move 14 schools to online learning after holding an emergency meeting in response to the severe spread of the COVID-19 virus during the attempt of the school district to open on-site learning during the school year earlier this year led to large spread of the virus that included 3,407 individuals in quarantine district-wide and a grand total of 480 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus among the Jordan School District population.
Many Utah parents continue to resist science regarding COVID-19, with the Utah “mom code” as the schools gathered to vote on whether they would make the switch to online learning or continue to hold in-person classes.
The middle schools included Mountain Creek, Hidden Valley, Copper Mountain, Fort Herriman, Elk Ridge, West Jordan and South Jordan, Sunset Ridge, and West Hills.
Bingham High, Herriman High, Mountain Ridge High, and West Jordan High
Students are currently scheduled to return to in-person classes on Monday, November 30.
