TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Keeping children safe when they return to the classroom is Leon County Schools' top priority this school year.

Every student will have their temperature checked and asked about how they're feeling before the start of the day.

The school has designated quarantine rooms for students displaying symptoms.

Masks are mandatory and superintendent Rocky Hanna says almost every classroom will be able to social distance.

"Our schools have worked very hard to ensure the safety of both our employees and our children," said Hanna. "We've done everything that we possibly can in conjunction with the Leon County Health Department and the CDC Guidelines to protect our children. That's job one."

Students head back to the classroom Monday.
