BATON ROUGE - Class is back in session for thousands of students and teachers across the Baton Rouge area.

Today marks the first day of the 2013-2014 school year for public students in East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge and East Feliciana parishes, and for Zachary Community Schools.

With the start of a new year comes a warning from law enforcement about drivers obeying school zones. The legal speed limit is 20 mph.
