Remove the "no polygons found for this address/location" message

When using the district lookup widget, if a user searches in there address which is not in a polygon, the error message "no polygons found for this address/location" appears. There is no functionality to be able to edit or remove the error message. This can be confusing for the users because not everybody would understand what this means.

I have tried using a bounding polygon outside of the location polygon; although this got rid of the original message, a new message now appears stating "could not find the point associated with the polygon".  I would rather not associate a point with this bounding polygon as this could cause more confusion for the users.

Yes please! I'm constantly getting emails about this with our school finder. It confused me the first time I saw it, and I work with this stuff every day. Couldn't it just say "Outside of district boundaries" or something to that effect?
