HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - Several Hampton High School students have been suspended for 10 days for a senior prank, a suspension they feel may put their graduation in jeopardy.
It's the first time being in trouble for these students, who have among them the Homecoming King, Homecoming Queen and Prom King.
"We're not a bad group of kids," said student Diesha Liddie.
Students said they were pre-approved to put up decorations on Monday, but they admit things may have gotten out of hand when someone cracked eggs on the floor and put condoms on doors inside the school.
Student Jania Watson told WAVY.com, "what we did didn't add up to the punishment."
Students are planning to appeal their suspension.
Ann Stephens-Cherry, a spokesperson for Hampton Schools told WAVY.com, "Due to the nature of the [prank], the students were disciplined in accordance with our rights and responsibilities handbook."
Despite rumors to the contrary, the students will be allowed to participate in their graduation ceremony, according to Cherry.
