    The school was placed on a brief lockdown for the cleanup due to “significant risk of an injury,” according to the Daily Herald.

    Officials reportedly said the school is reviewing video evidence and footage of the incident, but a decision has not yet been made on whether any of the participants will be allowed to walk with their class at graduation.

    Close to 70 students have been identified as taking part in the prank early Wednesday morning that started with traditional toilet-papering of the building, and later escalated to more serious vandalism involving live chickens and spray paint. Natalie Martinez reports.

    A district spokeswoman told the Daily Herald that students met with the administration earlier in the spring to discuss a senior prank that involved a “senior snuggle,” where students would fill a hallway hugging each other.
