BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — When the Palm Beach County School District updates its COVID-19 tracking dashboard on Tuesday, it will includes new COVID-19 cases in Boca Community Middle School, Spanish River High School and West Boca High. The new cases were reported to parents and guardians Monday afternoon and evening through robocalls and emails. Many parents sent the information to BocaNewsNow.com.
Officially, the Palm Beach County School District is reporting a total of 17 confirmed cases among students and employees, but that number is expectedto see a potentially significant jump on Tuesday — one week after “in person learning” began.
All students and employees testing positive for COVID-19 are ordered to quarantine. They must provide negative tests before returning for in-person school activities.
Separately, the Palm Beach County School District was forced to robocall more than 180,000 students on Monday to remind them that facial coverings are still required in all school district facilities. Apparently many believed that Gov. Ron DeSantis’ order bringing Florida to “phase 3” eliminate the masking requirement. That is not true. Anyone without a facial covering will not be permitted to enter school district facilities and buildings.
