GREENCASTLE ---- An automated phone system used by Greencastle High School called many parents, incorrectly saying their children were not at school Friday.
Marjorie Secrest was one of those parents. She said since she knew her child was at school, it didn't affect her day.
"I knew what had happened," she said. "I tried to call the school but I couldn't get through. I figured it just got sent out (on accident). It's not a big deal."
Attempts to reach Greencastle High School officials were not returned at press time, but the following automated message played when calls were made to the school.
"This is Greencastle High School. Several of you received incorrect phone calls saying your student was not here. These calls were sent out incorrectly. We apologize for the inconvenience," the recording said.
