BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County School District’s COVID-19 situation continues to worsen. As school resumes following the Labor Day and Rosh Hashanah holiday, the District is reporting 4,093 COVID-19 infections.

The school district logged 3,855 during all of the 2020-2021 school year, a year in which most students stayed home and engaged in “distance” learning. With Florida Governor Ron DeSantis prohibiting school districts from offering remote learning this year, all students are back in the classroom. And COVID is spreading.

Among the schools with notable COVID-19 counts early Wednesday morning:

Boca Raton High School: 95 cases.

Boca Raton Middle School: 40 cases.

Loggers Run Middle: 35 cases.

Olympic Heights High School: 53 cases.

The complete list appears, below. Note that the school district acknowledges that its public numbers are often three days behind reality. It takes at least a few days for the Florida Department of Health to confirm COVID cases that are reported to the school system. That confirmation occurs before the numbers are released.
