BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The COVID-19 situation in the Palm Beach County School District continues to worsen, as some schools are now so seriously hit by COVID that classes are largely empty.
As of early Monday morning, 5,292 students and employees have tested positive for COVID-19 during the school year that is just starting its seventh week. The split: 4,566 students and 726 employees.
Worse, thousands of students are under a daily “stay home” directive which is the school district’s equivalent of a quarantine. These are students who were near someone, for an extended period of time, who tested positive for COVID-19. These students are largely on their own. There is no “live, distance learning” due to mandates from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Teachers are not required to volunteer their time to teach these students after school.
Among the notable case countds Monday morning:
Addison Mizner Elementary: 58 COVID-19 cases.
Atlantic High: 41 COVID-19 cases.
