60 seniors at Kenowa Hills High School in Walker, MI were suspended from the last day of school because they rode their bicycles to school the day before.
The students had a police escort, and Mayor Robe Verheulen (a Republican running for the state House) even joined along and handed donuts out the students.
Some teachers and commuters in this suburb of Grand Rapids, though, took issue with sharing the road with these cyclists, and had the seniors suspended on the final day of classes today.
A Senior Prank is apparently a school tradition at Kenowa Hills High School. A huge salute to the Kenowa Hills Class of 2012 for this benign and thoughtful “Senior Prank.”
The school principal really went off on the seniors about causing a huge backup and a safety problem, while the police officer providing the escort said there was no safety issue, and traffic was able to get past with no problem. Much of the community is in a complete uproar about the suspension, which apparently was administered by the high school principle Katharine Pennington.
So sorry for the inconvenience!
