LOS OSOS, California – A high school student is very upset after seeing the incorrect name under her photo in this year’s yearbook.

In the photo, the student is wearing a hijab and posted on Facebook that she found the name ‘Isis Phillips’ to be very offensive, according to ABC 7.

The student is not being named publicly because a friend told ABC 7 that her family does not want to address the media.

She allegedly posted the photo on Facebook and wrote, “I am extremely saddened, disgusted, hurt and embarrassed that the Los Osos High School yearbook was able to get away with this. Apparently I am ‘Isis’ in the yearbook. The school reached out to me and had the audacity to say that this was a typo. I beg to differ, let’s be real.”

The school district and a student who works on the yearbook staff have issued apologies, saying it was an unintentional mistake.

The Chaffey Joint Union High School District released this statement:

“We are investigating to figure how this happened and we are certainly sensitive to the young lady. We have been in contact with the family and will continue to work with them to determine how this could happen and how we can remedy the situation.”
