Yow! Parents panic after school sends out 717 missing student messages in error

Parents of students at John Adams Elementary School were thrown into a panic recently when school officials inadvertently sent out a broadcast that students were absent from class.

This happened to thousands of students in the Metro Detroit area a couple of years ago. Our rather large district, and a huge number of other districts in SE Michigan were using the same computer system contractor and it malfunctioned on one of the first days of school. Due to a computer error most of us got a message that our children were absent. It took me awhile to straighten out whether my son was at school or not.

Far too many years ago, and certainly, not on this scale, my parents received a letter from the Army at Fort Lewis, claiming that I had not reported there for further transport to my assignment in Vietnam.

I think they were more amused at this than troubled, since we had already exchanged letters after I had gotten to my unit in Vietnam.
