Glitch hits Tonganoxie district’s notification system

May 18, 2007 Reports

A Tonganoxie school district telephone system designed to keep parents informed about emergencies malfunctioned Friday morning.

The system had been put into operation to notify parents of a lockdown at Tonganoxie High School while law enforcement officials searched for a suspect in an attempted murder and rape that occurred Wednesday in Topeka. The victim's stolen car was found early Friday morning near the Sonic Drive-In across the street from Tonganoxie High School.

But instead of a message about the lockdown, the telephone system was playing rap music.
