BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We predicted just before Thanksgiving break that the Palm Beach County School District would hit 1000 COVID cases at some point in early December. Sadly, we were correct. The school district is now reporting 980 COVID-19 cases logged since “brick and mortar” learning began. It is almost guaranteed that the district will report its 1000th case later today. BocaNewsNow.com is aware of several cases that have been communicated to parents but are not yet accounted for on the district’s list.
Among the schools hardest hit area schools:
Boca Raton Community High School with 29 COVID-19 cases (7 employees and 22 students).
Palm Beach Central High with 28 COVID-19 cases (6 employees and 22 students).
Seminole Ridge Community High School with 24 COVID-19 cases (10 employees and 14 students).
Calusa Elementary with 20 COVID-19 cases (4 employees and 16 students).
Jupiter Community High School with 16 COVID-19 cases (5 employees and 11 students).
Meadow Park Elementary with 16 COVID-19 cases (1 employee and 15 students).
Whispering Pines Elementary School with 13 COVID-19 cases (4 employees and 9 students).
Omni Middle School with 12 COVID-19 cases — all students.
Sunset Palms Elementary with 11 COVID-19 cases (3 employees and 8 students).
Wellington Community High School with 10 COVID-19 cases (1 employee and 9 students).
The Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County maintains that there is no proof of “student to student” or “student to staff member” contact, those claims are now being questioned after the Sun Sentinel revealed that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis ordered health department officials to not report accurate information. The raid on the home fo fired Florida data analyst Rebekah Jones on Monday also solidifies concern that health officials are — quite frankly — lying to Palm Beach County School District officials, risking the health and safety of students and teachers.
