Tour de Century senior pranks at Rochester's Century High School

senior prank Tour de CenturyIt was all captured in a video they posted on Facebook, a video that helped their principal find and then suspend them from the last week of classes.

A senior prank called the Tour de Century where 70 kids rode bikes and scooters and skateboards through the halls of their high school.

Joann Knuth knows kids want to leave their mark. But as the head the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals, she says end of the year practical jokes and pranks ideas often go too far, sometimes risking student safety and causing damage to school property.

"They impact the entire school, they may at the moment seem like harmless fun or play, but really in reality it gets to be serious." Knuth said. Especially when police are called, like they were in Portage, Wisconsin when Ryan Hayes and four other students had a food fight in the high school lunch room.

"I think it's pretty funny, I think what we got out of it was way more than we should have." said Hayes. Though, it was no joke when they were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, and fined 172 dollars.

"I was upset he was in a food fight, but I was more upset he got handcuffed and taken away in a police car." said Lee Ann Vesley, Hayes' mother.

But police and the principal say they had to do it, that while even they appreciate the humor, they have to put student safety first. "Schools determine their rules and regulations, and they have the expectation they will be followed until the end of the very last day of school." Knuth said.

In another similar case in Brookfield, Wisconsin, six seniors in the middle of the night built a swing set on the roof of their high school, among them were the valedictorian and salutatorian, and neither of them are being allowed to attend their graduation.
