A Draper charter has become the first school in Utah to be forced to close due to a COVID-19 outbreak. And a second charter has chosen to shut its doors after a smaller cluster of cases among staff.
American Preparatory Academy’s Draper 1 campus shut down Tuesday and learning will now shift online, confirmed Carolyn Sharette, the charter’s executive director. The move comes after 15 students and staff there tested positive for the virus less than two weeks after it had reopened.
“We’re just pivoting,” Sharette said. “I assume this will happen at all schools eventually.”
