An elementary school in Murray, Utah is moving its classes online for two weeks after staff were exposed to an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a statement released by the Murray School District on Sunday night, Parkside Elementary School will reopen on Nov. 9.

"While the actual case count at Parkside Elementary remains relatively low, out of an abundance of caution district officials have made the decision to take preventive measures to protect students and educators," the statement reads.

Online classes will begin Monday.

This is the first Utah elementary school to go online for two weeks due to staff being exposed to COVID-19.

School lunch and breakfast will be served "grab-and-go" style at the school each day of the dismissal. Students will used their assigned Chromebooks to complete assignments.
