Dad Robocalls His Own School District After Early Morning Call

01.14.11 | Sarah Harnisch

  The east coast snowstorm has been over for a couple of days... but thousands of parents are still fuming over a 4:30 a.m. robo call that said school was canceled. One dad of 5 from Maryland took the matter into his own hands, after they denied requests to put him on a no-call list. He did a little footwork and contacted his own robo call company, made his own recording, then had the company call the entire school district board in Prince George County, including the superintendant and all the general counsel. The call was made exactly 24 hours later, at 4:30 in the morning. A school board member apologized to all of the parents. He said the calls are usually placed closer to 6 a.m. He promised it will not happen again.
