Swingset on school roof prank may cost six seniors their graduation
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Six seniors at Brookfield East High School will not graduate with their classmates Saturday, because of a prank they pulled.

Supt. Matt Gibson said they went on the school's roof and built a swingset. The seniors were given three-day suspensions that include Saturday's commencement ceremony.

A construction project is taking place at Brookfield East, and an overnight worker saw the youngsters early Wednesday and contacted a school custodian.

That person called administrators and the police.

Gibson said the students' parents have appealed the suspensions, and he'll issue a response shortly.

The suspensions began Wednesday, but Gibson said Thursday and Friday don't count because seniors are not in school those days.
