Milestone Reached In Just Three Months
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Winter Break is now underway in the Palm Beach County School District under the ominous cloud of rising COVID-19 counts. The school district reports 1,214 COVID-19 infections as of December 21, 2020. The split: 683 students and 531 employees.
The number is notable. “Brick and Mortar” education started in mid-September, which means it took just three months to reach 1,214 cases. Just 40 percent of the school district’s student population engaged in “brick and mortar” learning — everyone else continued to learn from home.
Among the standouts as the winter break starts:
Boca Raton Community High School: 32 COVID-19 Cases.
Calusa Elementary School: 22 COVID-19 Cases.
Don Estridge High Tech Middle: 17 COVID-19 Cases.
Sunset Palms Elementary School: 16 COVID-19 Cases.
Hammock Pointe Elementary: 14 COVID-19 Cases.
Polo Park Middle School: 13 COVID-19 Cases.
Whispering Pines Elementary: 13 COVID-19 Cases.
Olympic Heights Community High School: 13 COVID-19 Cases.
Alexander Dreyfoos Jr. School of the Arts: 11 COVID-19 Cases.
Eagles Landing Middle School: 8 COVID-19 Cases.
Waters Edge Elementary: 4 COVID-19 Cases.
The school year resumes on January 4th, when parents will be required to again choose whether their children will attend school “in person,” or take part in “distance learning,” for the rest of the 2020-2021 school year.
