BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District now reports 953 confirmed COVID-19 infections since brick and mortar education resumed. That’s an increase of 35 in just a day.
BocaNewsNow.com received several messages Monday about overcrowding, no social distancing and no enforcement at Boca Raton area middle and high schools. Our request: If you see it, document it and send it to us. Use the form below. We will cover faces as appropriate.
Several people claiming to be teachers reached out to report that parents are still sending sick kids to school — kids who are coached to say they’re suffering from allergies or a minor cold. Those children, even teens at the high school level, are sent to a school nurse where they are isolated until a parent guardian picks them up.
These are the area schools with the highest COVID counts as of Tuesday morning, December 8, 2020:
Boca Raton Community High School reports 29 cases — that appears to be the highest in the Palm Beach County School District and besting Palm Beach Central High which reports 28 cases.
Calusa Elementary now reports 20 COVID-19 cases.
Jupiter Community High School reports 16 COVID-19 cases.
