Leesburg- School officials at Lee County Middle School say the first day went off without a hitch as more than 1,300 students returned to class.

Twelve new classrooms are currently being added on to the school to accommodate the growing student body, but until they're completed, students will have to wait for their locker assignments.

"We're going to wait until we move into the new rooms to issue lockers. So for a week or two we're going to kind of keep the books in the rooms and help them with that, so we don't have to issue lockers twice and learn new combinations and go through all of that," says principal Gail Melvin.

Principal Gail Melvin says the new classrooms are expected to be completed and ready for students in about four weeks.
