Today was the first hearing of our case. While this case continues to play out, we remain confident in its merits and in our standing. The ongoing pandemic continues to place our children and communities at risk--and the COVID-19 virus may yet do more harm as it evolves.
Vulnerable children in our communities remain poorly protected and unable to benefit fully from a free and fair public education. The plaintiffs in this case, from across Salt Lake County, have been directly and negatively impacted by the state's COVID-19 laws and by the related actions of elected officials. We continue to push, for our children and yours.
