BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A reminder for parents of students in the Palm Beach County School District: there is no school on Monday, February 1, 2021.
The day off has been on the calendar for months, but many parents contacting BocaNewsNow.com are expressing surprise. It is scheduled as a teacher in-service day as the first semester officially comes to a close and the second semester begins.
Things may look different in school when it resume on February 2nd. That’s when another 15,000 students are expected to return to “in school” learning. Most students, however, will continue to learn from home. The Palm Beach County School District tells us that just 48 percent of the student population — give or take — will be taking part in “brick and mortar” learning. Everyone else — more than 50 percent of the 180,000 student body — will continue with distance learning.
There is certainly reason to consider staying home: the school district now reports 2,010 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since mid-September with 742 new cases since school resumed on January 4th.
While there is no school Monday, note that school continues for the rest of the month. There are no scheduled days off for the Presidents’ Day holiday weekend.
