BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The school year has been over just a week but it’s only 9 weeks or so until the new school year starts.
At least on paper.
As COVID-19 continues to play out in Florida, there is no definitive answer yet as to when school will truly start, and what form it will take. Administrators speaking with BocaNewsNow.com suggest that that at a minimum distance learning will continue, possibly with an in-person option. But teachers are largely unexcited about being in a classroom where they have to play “hall monitor” to kids being forced to wear facial coverings, and many parents contacting BocaNewsNow.com say they will not send their kids to school until COVID-19 is under control.
The school district is expected to make a formal announcement about the new school year by July 10th. School start August 10th.
From the Palm Beach County School District:
The School District of Palm Beach County has launched a survey to collect feedback from parents and guardians pertaining to the reopening of schools.
The survey is available in English, Spanish, Haitian-Creole, and Portuguese and can be accessed online by parents and guardians using this link:
