School Board Member Adds “Call To Action” Order To Agenda

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District added more than 100 COVID-19 cases in just five days, bringing the school district’s total to 623 as of early Tuesday morning. Among several data points revealed in the latest report: Calusa Elementary in Boca Raton is a problem with 17 cases.

A sudden increase at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton seems connected to the group PSAT testing held in the school’s gym two weeks ago.

Boca Raton Community High School’s case count is notable — it’s now 14.


There are 349 student cases and 274 staff cases in the school district according to the early morning update. While the school board itself has been silent on the spike, the school board’s only medical doctor — Debra Robinson, MD, added an agenda item to Tuesday’s meeting calling on Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy to draft a “call to action.” A definition of the “call to action” was unclear. Dr. Robinson did not respond to a request for clarity from BocaNewsNow.com.

There is a growing call from parents and teachers to return school to “distance learning only” for the period between Thanksgiving and winter break in an effort to curb COVID — a policy several school districts nationwide are enacting.
