A senior class photo for Cypress Ridge High School students had students wear different letters of the phrase “CLASS OF 2010“. The first formal picture went perfect but for the second picture, students wearing C and L t-shirts ran to the back, leaving behind “ASS“. Obviously, the school didn’t like the prank and three students were fined $135 each.
“I heard C and L ran off. That’s not ass’s fault. That’s C and L’s fault, said senior Austin Knight. “It was funny and they shouldn’t have been punished.”
But it was the three students wearing A, S and S that got in trouble. Along with the fine and suspension, they lost their positions as officers for various clubs.
“S” man George Bermudez, who was the senior class secretary, said it was an accident.
Cy-Fair ISD officials didn’t buy that story.
In a statement, the district said: “Three students were disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. “
Some students agree with the district’s decision.
“I didn’t really think anything of it because it was supposed to be a funny picture, though it was ignorant and disrespectful,” said Raymond Carrigan, also a senior.
“They messed up. I know they feel bad they did it,” said senior Calvin Brown.
The fines will help pay for retouching and reprinting the panoramic for all 636 seniors.
They probably thought that it would be a harmless prank. Sorry guys, it always doesn’t work that way!
