Just received the automated message from my child's high school.."....One or more of your children was absent today....." blah blah .
Then the message repeated in Spanish!!!!!

The other automated messages from the school, ie: "students taking the AP exams must return to school..."
Do not repeat in Spanish.

This school district is 70% white. upper middle class. And the remaining 30% is African, Latino, and some Eastern European.

Not a large percentage of spanish speakers...so why repeated the "child was absent" message in Spanish.
