Albany -Dougherty County students went back to school today, but more than a hundred of them missed out on classes because they weren't properly registered. 

The cafeteria at Merry Acres Middle school was packed with parents and children who failed to bring in a proof of address at the end of last year.

A Water Gas and Light bill was required of all students moving up to middle and high schools as their proof of living in the correct school zone. 

School Principal Larry Worthy explained "Everyone here this morning will get registered if they have the proper documentation, otherwise a parent has to go get that and then we'll register the child.

The Board of Education said today it is not uncommon for students to report to the wrong school on the first day.
