TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — While the Leon County Re-Open Schools Task Force works towards releasing a final plan for parents and the upcoming school year, superintendent Rocky Hanna says the district will have plenty of PPE on hand to help protect students from the spread of COVID-19.

"We've acquired 400,000 masks from different organizations throughout the state and the Department of Education is even going to give us more," said Hanna. "So we have an abundant supply of masks for our children. They will get multiple masks."

Hanna says, so far, the masks they'll give to students are washable and will be available in different sizes to fit children's faces.

The district currently serves 32,500 students for a 180-day school year.
