RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. - Summer vacation is officially over for Palm Beach County students.
They headed back to school Tuesday morning.
Students attending Suncoast High School in Riviera Beach are starting their first day at a new state-of-the-art $91.5 million dollar building.
Freshman had orientation on Monday, so they could be more prepared for opening day.
Compared to the old building, the new has double the number of classrooms, a 684 seat cafeteria, and a 4-thousand seat stadium.
The principal says movers and some staff members worked the entire summer in order to be ready to open on the first day of school.
Parents at all schools are expected to know their child's bus number, and school's dress code. In addition they should let the school where their children attend know if their child is on any type of special medication.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office will be keeping a closer eye on the roads, especially in school zones.
Deputies say they will be strictly enforcing laws and regulations.
If you're caught speeding through a school zone, you can be fined up to $606.
