Alamance-Burlington School System officials released photos of some of damage and destruction done at six high schools in the name of “senior pranks.”
The school system described the damage, but did not delineate which schools are pictured in the photos.
In some cases, it appears the photos are taken from student posts on social media.
See stories on the “senior pranks,” criminal charges against seven students at Williams High School, a defense by two seniors and a parent at Eastern High School, and a story on why alarms didn’t go off at the high schools:
