Turlock Unified School District Superintendent Sonny DaMarto issued an apology on Friday for accidentally sending out a robocall to publicize today's Festival on the Green event to the homes of students at 5:45 a.m. The robocall was supposed to go out at 5:45 p.m.
“I apologize for the call so early in the morning. It was my fault. Evidently I set the time to be delivered on ‘a.m.’ instead of ‘p.m.’ for the message regarding the Festival on the Green. I am very sorry for this inconvenience, please forgive me,” DaMarto wrote.
The Festival on the Green is a community event sponsored by the TUSD and Turlock Education Foundation celebrating school music programs. It runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today at Pitman High School, 2525 Christoffersen Parkway.
