The Park City School District Board is scrambling Thursday to respond to a problem during Tuesday’s bond hearing. The doors were locked from the outside, so people interested in attending were not able to enter the building.

The Park City Board of Education held a public hearing Tuesday night seeking input on the $79.2 million school bond scheduled to run on November's ballot. It was a quiet night.

The goal of the special hearing was to elicit public input on the school bond – but no one gave any.

The heads of the Park City Education Association met with District Administration Monday to explore options to cover the costs of teachers using time off when quarantining for COVID-19 illness or exposure.

Mary Morgan is co-president of the Park City Education Association, Park City’s biggest teacher's union. KPCW reported last week that three of the four Wasatch Back school districts are requiring district employees to use personal time off when they quarantine due to COVID.


The Park City Board of Education meets Tuesday and will take public comments on agenda items beginning at 5.  At 6 PM, the public can give input on the $79 million general obligation bond initiative.


School districts on the Wasatch Back have differing personnel policies for staff who are quarantining due to COVID-19.


According to the Utah Department of Health, anyone testing positive for COVID-19 should isolate immediately. Park City School District employees who do that must use their sick days and vacation time to do so. Some employees are worried that will lead to underreporting of cases.


Tuesday night, the Summit County Sheriff's office received a call from a parent whose child heard two boys talking about shooting up the Ecker Hill Middle School.
