Studio Is Official Provider For Palm Beach County School District, But No District Employee On Site To Ensure COVID Compliance
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County high school seniors were apparently packed into a Delray Beach photo studio Saturday for yearbook photos, but social distancing rules weren’t followed as studio employees told parents that they knew there were problems.
Parents contacting BocaNewsNow.com say Cady Studios — the official yearbook photo studio used by high schools throughout the area — didn’t honor appointments, didn’t clean studio sets between each session, and had scores of people waiting in groups and lines. While some are seen in the photo above wearing masks, parents say many people did not.
“It was bad,” said a parent speaking with BocaNewsNow.com.
BocaNewsNow.com called Cady’s Delray Beach location multiple times Saturday afternoon but the phone was not answered. A national switchboard would only accept messages from those possessing an “elite member” passcode. Cady’s website states the Delray Beach studio, at 931 South Congress, is open Saturday through 8 p.m.
A parent contacting BocaNewsNow.com said she told employees that there were too many people inside. One employee, according to the parent, responded by saying, “we know, what are we supposed to do?”
While the school district instructed seniors to have their photos taken at Cady, no Palm Beach County School District representative was on location to ensure the studio complied with Palm Beach County and School District COVID-19 rules and regulations.
“I feel like I need to go get a COVID test,” said a parent who told BocaNewsNow.com that a session — which should have taken an hour and was scheduled for a set time to ensure social distancing — took several hours and afforded no distancing at all.
We will update with a response from Cady studios when and if one is received.
