Embarrassing 'SHCOOL' sign replaced in NYC

'Shcool' crossing warning misspelled

The word school was misspelled as "shcool" on Stanton Street in front of Marta Valle High School. The error was made sometime last summer, MyFoxNY.com reports. (MyFoxNY.com)

An embarrassing misspelling of "school" is gone from the street outside a New York City school building.

Utility workers used heavy machinery to grind up the wrongly placed "H'' and "C'' in the "SHCOOL X-NG" sign on Tuesday.

The correction was made a day after the New York Post reported the spelling error.

The words were created with industrial textured tape that permanently sticks to the asphalt.

The Consolidated Edison utility told the Post (http://nyp.st/A41ber ) the blunder occurred when a contractor ripped up the street for utility work and replaced the existing markings. It says the mistake outside the Manhattan building that houses three schools had been there since July 2010.
