Not So Funny Senior Prank at Texas High School Goes Drastically Wrong
I'm pretty sure senior pranks date back to before time itself. Some turn out to be pretty forgettable while others are so classic they can be remembered for all of eternity.
This might be one in the eternity category.
Senior pranks have certainly evolved over the years. What used to be considered innocent fun, like throwing water balloons and shaving cream pies to chalk graffiti and setting off stink bombs, has turned into destruction and chaos, at least at this Texas high school.
Memorial High School
Seniors at Memorial High School in Frisco, Texas took "senior prank" a bit too far this year. What started out as a supervised Post-it note prank somehow turned to absolute chaos and destruction that resulted in "thousands of dollars" in damages and summer arriving two days earlier than planned.
According to FOX4 News, the Post-it note prank was originally supposed to have the students leaving post-it notes around campus but a number of students would end up causing thousands of dollars in damage after vandalizing the school.
Following the "prank", school was canceled for the last two days for air quality concerns after several fire extinguishers were set off.
Memorial High School principal, Heather Albuquerque, told parents that because of the damage caused by the "prank", school would be canceled for the last two days of the semester
"The Frisco Police Department and Fire Department were called to assist with the situation. Unfortunately due to the extent of the damage, Memorial High School is unable to hold classes today and tomorrow, Thursday & Friday, May 19 and 20 due to air quality issues."
The pranked resulted in damage to the school that will require the 300,000 sq. ft. campus to be cleaned in its entirety.
The Frisco Police Department has taken over the case and school officials have said they will review the video evidence and hold those responsible accountable for the damage.
