‘An accidental push of a button Friday had students at Palm Bay High questioning what they’d done wrong and parents plotting punishments.
Parents of all 2,550 students in the school received an automated call Friday reminding them that their student had to report for Saturday morning detention. Problem was, the message only should have gone to 16 homes.
“One of my friends texted me to ask if I had Saturday detention,” said Robert Lenoci, 15, of Valkaria. The sophomore is going to the state science fair finals and hasn’t been in trouble before.
“I looked and I had a message from mom. She was asking, ‘What did you do?’ It was pretty bad,” he said.’
