The Lebanon City Schools are reaching capacity for classroom enrollment for the coming school year.

“At the close of business today, our student enrollment numbers for in-class instruction will be at capacity to accommodate safe spacing within our classrooms and other areas. As a result, beginning tomorrow, July 15, all new students registering for Lebanon City Schools will be automatically placed in the online program for the first semester. We understand that this placement will create a burden for working families. However, we cannot compromise the safety of our students and staff by overcrowding our classrooms and school buildings,” according to a release Tuesday by the school district.

Students in the online program will not be required to perform their work during the school day.

“They can perform the work once parents are at home, but that is a decision for the family to make. Let’s all hope that by the start of the second semester, we can safely bring students back to school.” Superintendent Todd Yohey added.
