Dear Parents and Guardians,
Last night I received a phone call from the health department informing me that we have a positive COVID-19 case at Manti High. All required steps have been taken and those who have been exposed have been notified.
This new development has given us a renewed resolve to ensure students, teachers and all staff are wearing masks at all times, washing hands, and using hand sanitizer as much as possible.
On Tuesday, Governor Herbert announced major changes to Utah’s COVID-19 guidelines.

Utah’s new COVID-19 Transmission Index: Each counties current status
Under the new guidelines, Sanpete County is classified at the moderate level. According to the Utah Department of Health, casual social gatherings will be limited in each transmission area. Since Sanpete County is in the Moderate Transmission Area, we are limited to 25 or fewer, unless masks are worn.
To ensure we are following the new guidelines, masks MUST be worn by spectors at all sporting events throughout the duration of the game. You will be required to wear a mask to enter the facility. For those who prefer not to wear a mask the game will be streamed live on live.manti.com (Channel 3 TV).
We are hosting a football game tonight versus Delta. Masks are required to enter the football stadium since we have more than 25 parents and fans attending our games. We are asking everyone to please support this effort for the students. We want our students to be here at school and we want students to participate in the sports and activities that make high school fun. Let’s keep our school open and mask up!
We appreciate you as our partner in educating your child and value the relationship we have with you. Let’s be extra diligent for the safety and well being of our students.
Sincerely, MHS Admin Karen Soper & Josh Palmer
