SALT LAKE CITY — A number of northern Utah schools announced closures, delays or a move to online learning Wednesday as a fast-moving winter storm dumped inches of fresh snow across the Wasatch Front. 

Parents, please note that most schools do not announce when they opt to stay open. If your school or district is not listed, it may be operating as usual.
