PICKERINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) — Pickerington Local School District announced some students may not be able to attend class on the first day.

Due to an unprecedented number of students enrolling, Pickerington Schools may not be able to process every student’s residency verification requirement paperwork before the first day of classes, the district announced on Facebook.

“We apologize for the stress and inconvenience this causes our students and families, and we ask for your understanding during this time,” the Facebook post said. “We are processing these legally required documents as quickly as we can.”

In a follow-up post made later in the evening, Pickerington Schools said the team may be able to complete all of the paperwork before the first day of school.

“Remember, Pickerington Schools is on a staggered start schedule for the beginning of classes this school year, which will help our hard-working team by providing extra processing time since not all students are scheduled to begin classes on Aug. 15,” the post read.

Parents are advised by the district to watch their email for the status of their student’s enrollment and residency verification process.
