This was not the case Tuesday at Rosebud-Lott High School where a few students took a senior prank too far.
"There was a wild hog released into the building. The floors were covered with a mixture of baby oil and shampoo, fire extinguisher and baby powder," said Rosebud-Lott superintendent Anthony Price.
"Some are disappointed and some think its funny and I'm very disappointed in how it happened and got out of control like that," said Rosebud-Lott Junior Olivia Miller.
It took three hours for Price and his staff to clean up what is estimated to cost $8-10,000 in damages.
"I had uh, a big emotional, uh, wave yesterday between disappointment, feelings, feelings of heartbreak and anger," said Price.
"We actually had a meeting this morning about how we need to get our reputation back together," said Miller.
Price said the school plans to pay for the damages by working it into their budget or seeking restitution from the families.
As for the wild hog?
"It's ironic that we served ham this morning for, for breakfast and I said 'Is this that hog?'" said Price.
