For many of us, senior pranks were a part of high school. While I don’t remember my class of 2002 at Danville High School pulling off any hijinks (or if we did, it wasn’t that memorable), senior pranks have been a rite of passage for decades. Well, not anymore, apparently. Schools across the Bluegrass are cracking down, with Rockcastle County High School going as far to bring in police to prevent senior pranks:
First of all, what senior pranks have gone down at Rockcastle County the past few years to warrant this move? Most senior pranks I’ve heard of seem pretty harmless. For instance, according to WKYT, last night, a group of Lexington Catholic students were caught TPing (toilet papering) the trees outside the school. Police didn’t charge them, but made them clean it up. Just good ole fashioned fun, right?
On a whole other level is last year’s senior prank at Henry County, where students created a Craigslist ad that listed the school and the freshman class for sale for $22,000. According to WHAS11, the post read:
“We the administration are forced to sell this beautiful school for cheap because of financial troubles. It is well equipped with fully functional gyms and even an auditorium and full service kitchen. The courtyard in the middle is a little rough but just needs some TLC. The location is excellent and only about 10 minutes from I-71. The entire freshmen class is included in this offer.”
Officials at the school made the senior take the post down, but even they admitted it was all in good fun; I’d go as far to say it was downright clever. But, apparently, no such antics will be tolerated at Rockcastle County High, which seems to have shut down its Facebook page after the backlash from the decision.
Feel free to list the best senior pranks you’ve heard of in the comments.
