“By the end of the day, we will potentially be close to 100 students quarantined,” school leaders said.

According to officials, some students were involved in extracurriculars which is why the number of students needing to self quarantine is higher than usual.

Seminole County Public Schools returns for their second semester on Jan. 4.
