Excitement quickly turned into anger and frustration when parents were told their children were accepted into coveted schools, only to learn it was a mistake. The Department of Education says a computer glitch led to the mistake.

The acceptance letters were sent to 55 families wait-listed for seats at PS 87 and 10 families wait-listed for PS 199.

The department says letters were immediately sent out to parents to clear up the mistake.
