Dozens of Middle Georgia high school seniors won’t be able to attend their graduation ceremonies, after they participated in a “dangerous and unsafe” prank, school officials said.
The students sprayed water guns and threw water balloons in the cafeteria and nearby hallway, the newspaper reported.
Schools Superintendent Noris Price said in a statement the incident “created a very dangerous and unsafe situation.”
Two other students suffered panic attacks, and paramedics had to be called to help one of them, school spokesman Byron Wellman said.
The students will still receive their diplomas and any honors they’ve earned, officials said.
