Senior prank goes haywire, Texas high school cancels classes – New York Daily News

This prank tanked.

A Texas high school canceled its last two days of school this year after a senior prank left the building unusable.

Students at Memorial High School in the Dallas suburb of Frisco had been approved to stick Post-It notes throughout the building Wednesday for their senior prank, local NBC affiliate KXAS reported.

But instead, a couple students took that as license to do anything they wanted, breaking out fire extinguishers, pulling fire alarms, painting walls and causing thousands of dollars of damage to the school, administrators said.

This is taking a senior prank way too far. Memorial High School.

“It was another level of embarrassment for me because I was expecting just to go to school the next day and (see) sticky notes everywhere,” student Katelynn Mabrey told local Fox affiliate KDFW.

Instead, adults surveyed the damage and determined the building’s air quality was so bad that it couldn’t host classes Thursday and Friday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Those were supposed to be the last two days of school, but they won’t be made up.

But the school did come up with a real punishment, saying it would review social media videos to find the students who caused the damage, force them to pay for it and pursue criminal charges.

“Disciplinary measures will be enforced and Frisco ISD intends to prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law,” administrators said in a letter to the community.
