DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Parents are livid and scared following multiple texts and emails from Get Ready Set Grow Academy in Delray Beach announcing that students, teachers and now a parent are infected with COVID-19.

BocaNewsNow.com first reported on the teacher and student infections last week, complete with photos showing teachers partying together without social distancing. Those teachers, according to multiple sources, then attended a party in a student’s house.

When the COVID-19 infections were publicized, many pointed to the parties as possible “super spreaders.” While there is no indication that the lack of facial covering use or people standing side by side had anything to do with the COVID-19 spread at the school, contact tracers are apparently looking at the events.

The parties took place in late June. On July 5th, this text just obtained by BocaNewsNow.com was sent by Get Ready Set Grow management to several — but not all — parents in the school.

The parent holding the party, Dayna Bromley, shouted at BocaNewsNow.com when asked whether her event could have been the cause of the COVID-19 infections, as well as why social distancing guidelines weren’t followed.

“It’s a recommendation but it’s not a law,” said Bromley. “This is absolutely ridiculous! I’m allowed to make that judgement on my own. No one can tell me not to have a party!”


“It’s a recommendation but it’s not a law,” said Bromley when asked about executive orders and CDC guidelines. “This is absolutely ridiculous! I’m allowed to make that judgement on my own. No one can tell me not to have a party!”


Get Ready Set Grow announced Sunday night (July 19, 2020) that another staff member — we now count at least two staff members, a student and a parent — have tested positive for COVID. While BocaNewsNow.com has obtained the texts sent by the school, several parents contacting us say that the texts are only being sent to parents of students in a specific “pod” or section of the school. Not every parent.

The school has not responded to requests for comment from BocaNewsNow.com.

“Why are they not telling everyone everything?” asked an angry parent. “They’re treating this like a common cold or other childhood sicknesses. This is COVID. Stop playing games.”

Here is the July 19th text sent to select parents:

Parents — afraid to use their names due to fear of their children being alienated by teachers or managers — tell BocaNewsNow that anyone attempting to pull their children from the $17,000 to $19,000/year preschool are met with threats of lawsuits from the preschool’s owner.

  1. Leave the teachers out of this!!!! You still are continuing to report on false facts. Obviously, you are getting info from an upset source who is willing to throw anyone in the fire to get their tuition back! Teachers have the most difficult decision as schools begin to open. Loss of income or health risk! You are not looking at the other side. Are parents being asked to not social distance, not go to public places, etc. I would think not. Maybe check some of their social media pages and see they are not practicing social distancing! Parents and teachers are having to make extremely difficult decisions right now in light of our states rapid increase in cases! Your false reporting is not helping in this decision! Start reporting on something like our politicians and their ability to get this under control!

    1. Can’t get under control if people refuse to follow guidelines or use common sense about the virus.
      It is up to us to watch and be careful so our children and loved ones don’t get it. The President and the government or any other people can’t be blamed YOU ARE A GROWN UP USE YOUR OWN FREAKIN HEAD. We complain we want stores and jobs open so we can survive, and than we DO NOT USE OUR HEADS AND PREPARE OURSELVES with the proper tools to use to not get the virus INCLUDING NO PARTIES AND SOCIAL DISTANCES . STOP POINTING FINGERS WHEN WE ARE IN CONTROL. I hate all this too but it is what it is DEAL WITH IT, I’m trying too.

    2. Wait a second… Saying that they should be reporting on the politicians and their ability to get this under control is the same as saying – There’s a snake infestation problem at a park. People are still being bit, but they aren’t wearing their rubber snake boots while visiting the park despite knowing they should. Let’s even say these people work inside a pavilion at the park. They still refuse to wear their snake boots and have instead decided to have a little get together one night at the park while still not wearing their boots. They weren’t trying to stay a safe distance away from any of the snakes (poisonous or not) and picked some up by their tails during that little get together and now we need to focus our attention on the pastor down the street with his inability to control the snake problem??? What?

    3. We had a bad experience at GRSG about a year ago when our son was sick and had to be pulled from their program and we too were threatened with hefty legal action!

  2. Honestly, the only people who will come here to post a comment supporting the parents’ ability to hold a party or allow their child to attend a party during a global pandemic are the ones who think they’re better than everyone else and therefore cannot possibly be sickened, as if Covid-19 cares two hoots how big your house is, what kind of car you drive, or whether you put your kids in a $17K preschool. Unbelievable.

  3. Bocanews should immediately remove the pictures posted of these kids! Shame on you. These parents know there is a risk putting them in school. Stay home with your child. Clearly, you can pay for a sitter to come to your home if u can afford that tuition!
    Are those “livid” mother’s getting their nails and hair done? I bet they are. Hypocrites.
