Important COVID-19 Update – November 9, 2020

November 9, 2020

Dear LAU parents,

Last night, Governor Herbert released an executive order with temporary statewide COVID-19 restrictions. Here’s a quick update on how these new restrictions apply to LAU:

ILC courses and Outdoor Adventures:

The new restrictions bring no changes to our existing safety measures for ILCs and Outdoor Adventures. These classes still require students to wear masks, practice social distancing of at least six feet, and attend class remotely via Zoom if they feel sick. Please encourage your student to follow these guidelines.

Funded Independent Studies courses:

If your student is taking a Funded Independent Studies course, we simply ask that you use your best judgment. If it is possible for your student’s class to be held in Zoom, we recommend that you encourage your vendor to do so.

Upcoming Burger Meets:

Unfortunately, the new restrictions do directly affect the Burger Meet in Hurricane that was scheduled for this Friday. This activity has been canceled.

If you have any questions or concerns about this update, please reply to this email. 


Pete Jensen

Executive Director, Leadership Academy of Utah
