ROY — After a member of Roy High School’s administrative team tested positive for COVID-19, three other school administrators are now under quarantine.

The school district did not identify the individuals, citing federal medical and education privacy laws, but said the school will remain open.

“We believe the administrator contracted the virus outside of the school setting. After conducting a thorough contact tracing process, we did not identify any students or faculty members who were potentially exposed,” the district said in a statement issued Monday.

The administrator who tested positive is in isolation, a district official said.

A substitute leadership team will act as proxy for the Roy High administrative team until the affected administrators are cleared to return to work, possibly Sept. 25.

Clyde Moore, the district’s supervisor of secondary education, will act as lead administrator and he will be supported by two high school assistant principals from others schools. 

Meanwhile, the school district is working closely with the Weber Morgan Health Department in monitoring and will provide updates as needed.
