While some people were upset about the misspelled sign near Columbia Park Elementary, an equal number took the opportunity to make jokes about staying in ‘scohol.’

At least one individual was willing to stick up for the workers responsible for the mistake.

“Try to remember there is a person attached to that error. We all mess up sometimes, luckily, for most of us it’s not in such a public manner,” the person wrote.

While the workers responsible might be feeling a little sheepish about making such a giant-lettered mistake it still provided most of Revelstoke with a good chuckle.
