TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Many schools around Tallahassee used as shelters during Irma are now preparing to reopen their doors to students on Thursday.
Leon County School's superintendent Rocky Hanna said he's proud of how school leaders have stepped up during storm preps, but now, it's time to get back to regular school work.
"We provide education for 34,000 students, sure, but we also provided emergency sanctuary to thousands in our community and to other parts of the state," said Hanna.
Hanna also said Irma did not cause any structural damage to any of the schools, despite electricity being lost at Chaires Elementary.
As many as eight work crews were out cleaning storm debris in preparations for Thursday.
