At least 13 seniors at Keller’s Central and Timber Creek high schools will not be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies this weekend for the roles they played in end-of-year senior pranks last week.
Four students at Timber Creek won’t be able to participate because of their role in a prank in which snakes, rats and crickets were released into hallways and stink bombs were set off throughout the school.
Keller school district and campus administrators met Tuesday to review the situations and determine consequences for those students involved.
According to a news release, the students punished “were identified as having physically created an unsafe environment through reckless disregard for the safety of other students, and were witnessed by campus staff or administrators doing so.”
Additional students at Keller, Central and Timber Creek high schools will receive lesser punishments for senior pranks.
According to the news release, those students “will still be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies; however, they will be accompanied by their parents after arriving, be sequestered from the remainder of classmates before graduation, and will be monitored closely during the graduation ceremony.” – Lee Williams
