Tallahassee, Florida --
Monday is the first day of school for Leon County, and that means more than 32,000 students will be going through school doors for a new academic year.
Kim McFarland is the Principal of Roberts. She said, "We just anticipate watching our little kindergartners come in with their lunchboxes, their backpacks, and their parents taking pictures of them. It's just a very exciting."
For many kids this is their big day, going to school for the first time.
Tony Gines and his wife dropped off their son for his first day. He said, " He's real excited. His favorite thing that he wanted to do was to eat lunch today."
Andrea Leishman is a mom of three. She dropped her youngest off for his first day. " When I dropped him off, as soon as we walked in the room he started to hug me, and then he sat down at the desk and he hugged me again, so I got about four hugs before I got out the door," she said.
There's one thing that's associated with back to school, and that is traffic. Although there was congestion near school zones, no accidents were reported.
