Due to the number of COVID-19 cases at Provo High School, and in collaboration with the Utah County Health Department, Provo High School will move to remote learning this Thursday, January 21, to accommodate a deep cleaning of the school building. Tomorrow will continue in the current Phase 2 schedule to support students in settling and understanding their new term schedules. Teachers are expected in the building Thursday and Friday mornings until noon.
Provo High will then move back to Phase 1 starting Monday, January 25, 2021. As a reminder, Phase 1 allows students to attend school in-person every other day with the off day being an online school day. In moving back to Phase 1 the schedule will be as follows:
- Students with last names A-K will attend in person on Monday, January 25 and Wednesday, January 27.
- All 10 and 11 grade students attend in person Tuesday, January 26 (with all others students online). The PSAT exam will be given this day. This exam is for ALL 10 and 11 grade students and National Merit Scholarships are based on the results of this exam.
- Students with last names L-Z will attend in person on Thursday, January 28.
Students who are participating in in-season extracurricular activities may continue to do so as long as they have tested negative and are current in their testing.
Unless otherwise notified, Provo High will move directly to the Monday-Friday in-person, early release schedule, as recently announced by the School Board, on Monday, February 1.
The health department participated in the conversation and decision to change phases. The district is continually monitoring daily COVID-19 cases in conjunction with the Health Department. These numbers are reported on the district website. The health and safety of our students and employees are of utmost concern. The district will continue to monitor these numbers and make changes as necessary.
In the meantime, we strongly encourage our students and families to adhere to current state and county wide health orders and avoid large gatherings and wear a mask in public. We appreciate your patience and support as we work to keep our students and staff safe in the midst of this pandemic.
