Half of Texas High School Graduating Class Suspended Over Prank With Plastic Forks

Did this senior prank go too far or was it harmless?

Half the graduating class at a Texas high school was suspended and had their senior privileges revoked after pulling a senior prank that involved balloons and plastic forks.

Reporter Morgan Burrell shared a photo of the mischief on Twitter which shows balloons in a classroom and plastic forks sticking out of the school’s practice lawn.

According to News 4 San Antonio, half of the graduating class, including the valedictorian and salutatorian, was suspended for the prank.

Some students were involved in forking the practice field but there were other students who took the prank further and went inside the high school after hours.

The hashtag #freetheforkingseniors started and parents weighed in with one telling the station, “It was a harmless senior prank that all of us parents knew 100% what was going on…”

“For the most part, there were balloons, there was a deer that went crooked on the wall, there was some saran wrap, there’s been no damage, no destruction, no graffiti, no defacing of property, and no police reports,”  parent Hope Jay said.
