    A group of seniors at a northwest suburban high school may not be able to walk in their graduation ceremony after pulling a senior prank Thursday, turning a hallway of the school into an indoor Slip-N-Slide.

    Students at Jacobs High School in Algonquin reportedly dumped baby oil, water, dishwashing soap and laundry soap onto a tarp and slid across it.

    The scene, captured on cell phone video, showed liquids spilling into the hallway as students slid across the tarp and tiles, even as teachers attempted to clear the area.

    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.

    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.
