A power outage has forced the cancellation of school today at Alta High. The decision was made after careful consideration of alternatives, and is largely due to the absence of natural light in the building and inability to effectively conduct classes.
Alta High lost power today at about 8:30 a.m., and the utility company will not be able to fix the issue until after 3 p.m. We regret the inconvenience this may cause families, but please be assured that all students are safe and will remain in the commons area where there is the most natural light until they can either get on a bus or arrange for transportation. Students who live within walking distance also may leave for the day.
The District has notified parents via phone and email. Operators also are on hand to answer any questions they may have at 801-826-5000.
