One Response to “CdMHS Senior Prank: Water Fight, Sand, Tables on Roof”
June 17th, 2011
Where's the photos of tables on the roof??? ;) Darn kids!
UPDATE to add comments from the principal.
Corona del Mar High School seniors staged a water balloon fight this week as part of a senior prank that lasted about 10 minutes and drenched the campus quad.
Some students said they had warning before the prank and were able to run into classroom buildings to avoid being pelted by water balloons and water guns.
Several students posted photos and videos on YouTube and Facebook; click here to see one video that shows students — including one wearing a gorilla mask — running around the quad before heading off to the swimming pool.
Seniors also placed lunch tables on the school roof and dumped sand in the quad. Earlier this month, some students said that seniors let crickets loose in the school.
Principal Tim Bryan said there was no damage, but six students went to the nurse for minor injuries including a black eye and “some really unfortunate scrapes and bruises.”
“The water balloons began flying at 10:00, the start of break and everyone returned to class at the beginning of 3rd period, 10:15,” he said in an email. “We are very concerned and disappointed that anyone got injured.”
A daily bulletin issued to students today advised them to check their textbooks to see if the were wet from the prank, and to bring them to the library today if they were wet.
“Your book needs to be dried or else it will be get moldy and you will have to pay to replace any textbook that is moldy,” the bulletin said. “DO NOT WAIT until next week! Dry your textbook with a hair dryer or return it to the library for us to dry TODAY!”
