CAPE CORAL, Fla -- The first day of school for Lee County students is just around the corner. Schools are set to reopen Monday, August 31.

However with it fast approaching, a number of parents said they have yet to receive their child's schedule.

The School District of Lee County shared this statement with Fox 4:

As you know, we have had to assign 85,000 students to four learning models and 6,000 teachers to three learning models. Then we had to break the students into cohorts that will stay together and schedule secondary teachers to teach in person and online. Once we did that, then we had to assign students to those classes, keeping them in their cohorts. Doing this as families continue to change their model of instruction and the rules from the CDC, Health Department and DOE continue to change. We can only ask administrators to work 24 hours a day, which is what they have been doing the last couple of weeks to put this all together.
