BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — It will come as no surprise, but Palm Beach County Schools are now closed indefinitely, according to Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy.
Schools were originally closed until at least until April 1st, then April 15th. The “at least” part of the original announcements is now the key part of the announcements. With “stay at home” orders in effect across Palm Beach County, Fennoy says there is no choice but to keep schools closed.
The first announcement about school closures came on March 16th when Dr. Fennoy announced that schools would be closed through the end of Spring Break. But Governor Ron DeSantis — in an announcement that seemed to surprise school leaders — said schools would actually be closed until April 15th. Now schools are closed until further notice.
Tuesday’s announcement came as virtual learning launched for nearly 200,000 students across Palm Beach County. Teachers and students are navigating their way through Google Classroom and video conferencing. Few problems have been reported.
