BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — There are no agenda items set for this Tuesday’s School Board meeting concerning the dramatic increase in student and staff COVID-19 cases. The current agenda — as of early Monday, November 16th — makes it appear as if it is business as usual in the school district. But the school district itself reports 578 confirmed COVID-19 cases with several school hotspots, including elementary schools in Boca Raton.

Among the schools with deteriorating COVID-19 situations: Palm Beach Central High, Seminole Ridge Community High, Calusa Elementary in Boca Raton, Sunset Palms Elementary in Boca Raton, Whispering Pines Elementary School in Boca Raton, Boca Raton Community High School and Boca Raton Community Middle School.

The Florida Department of Health reports that pediatric positivity rate in Palm Beach County has risen to 11.4 percent. The DOH defines “pediatric” as anyone 18 or younger.


Here is the early Monday morning update from the Palm Beach County School District.

  1. What devilishness , just because you act if this Pestilence # covid19 not there it not going away it getting worse,these are the Educators? Putting children and teachers, parent lives at Risk. Stop this Satanic behavior

  2. So out of that 600, how many have been hospitalized?

    Ed. Note: We think the question you meant to ask was out of the 600, how many passed the virus to others? How many parents, grandparents and great grandparents were infected, got sick or died? Surely that’s the question you intended to ask.
