Officials: No, that fake Twitter account claiming Talawanda schools are closed is not real

Talawanda Schools alerted the community Tuesday to a fake social media account posing as an affiliate account to the Talawanda School District.

The fake post claimed there were power outages at Talawanda High School, and that the school would be canceled for the rest of the year.

“Clearly, this is false, and the account has been reported to Twitter,” Talawanda Schools posted on its real Twitter account.
