UPDATE:

Parents who attended the Wayne County Board of Education meeting on Monday evening told 13News that the students involved in the prank at Wayne High School will be suspended for the remainder of the school year. The students will not be allowed to walk in Wednesday's graduation ceremonies.  The Wayne County prosecuting attorney confirmed that information.

The incident is still under investigation by West Virginia State Police.  Students will be handled on an individual basis.


UPDATE:

Students are in trouble after a prank left Wayne High School with a big mess.

Principal Stapleton told 13 News that many of the children involved are top academic honor students.  The students were asked to clean the school everyday this week in order to walk at graduation. 

Stapleton told us that she can still be overruled on her decision at a meeting tonight.

ORGINAL:

What some are calling a local high school prank left one school a smelly mess and students out of the classroom on Friday.

A worker at Wayne High School said when staff arrived early Friday morning they found a mess in the school. Someone broke a window and opened a fire escape, then trashed a classroom. The school employee told 13News that deer urine was spilled all over the floor and a desk.

Workers also found rancid dead deer parts in the hallway and blood on the floors.

A student said that she and others at the school were taken to the gymnasium on Friday until workers could get the mess cleaned up.

No official word about who did it, or what charges they might face. The West Virginia State Police is investigating.
