Everyone who's ever gone to school should know how to spell "school."
But someone who plastered a school crossing sign on the street in front of a New York City high school got it wrong.
The big white letters in front of Marta Valle High School on the Lower East Side say "SHCOOL X-NG."
A spokesman for the city Department of Transportation said the error was made by a utility provider, not by the city.
The Post says workers apparently cut into the several months ago to get to underground utility lines. When utilities or contractors perform work on a city street, they are responsible for restoring it correctly.
The Department of Transportation spokesman said the error will be corrected.
