FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A body has been found face down in a small lake outside a South Florida high school on Tuesday as students returned from the holiday break.

A school bus driver spotted something suspicious in the water as she dropped students off Tuesday morning. The lake is surrounded by fencing between buildings on the Dillard High School campus in Fort Lauderdale.

Divers removed the body from the water, detective Tracy Figone told news outlets.

She said no additional information was immediately available. The body was taken to the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The school was placed on a Code Yellow, and classes continues uninterrupted, officials said. Tuesday was the first day back to school in Broward County.

The investigation continues.
