MOORHEAD, MN (AP) -

Students at Moorhead High School are learning a painful lesson about proofreading after a typo landed right on their yearbook's cover.

Extra painful: The name of the town was misspelled as "Moorehead," with the extra "e" that sometimes gets dropped into the town's name.

School officials say the mistake got past an adviser and two classes of students who worked on the yearbook last year. It was sent off this summer to be printed at Josten's, and copies arrived this week, The Forum of Fargo reported.

Spokeswoman Pam Gibb says the district can't afford to reprint the yearbooks, which cost about $20,000 to produce. School officials say they're discussing using an adhesive label to cover up the mistake.
