BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District continues to show significant numbers of new COVID-19 cases among students and employees.
At least 110 cases have been logged since February 1st — just three days ago. At least 890 cases have been added since the school year resumed on January 4th. At least 2,158 COVID-19 cases have been logged since “brick and mortar” learning started for some students in September.
The significant rise comes as school officials confirm that 52 percent of the student population is now learning in person while 48 percent remains learning from home. BocaNewsNow.com is aware of several situations where students returned to school, only to say they didn’t feel safe and returned to distance learning. Several teachers have told BocaNewsNow.com that they do not have the space in their classrooms to accommodate social distancing and other rules that are in place — at least officially — in the school district.
