Post-it Prank Protest Leaves 57 Students Suspended

Last updated on Thursday, May 17, 2012

(CLAYTON) - School officials have suspended 57 students demonstrating Wednesday in support of a janitor fired for letting high school students into a school for a Post-it note prank.

The 57 students staged a sit-in at the gym and got suspended Wednesday morning. They then moved outside of the school and were being threatened with further penalties.

The protest stems from a prank in which five seniors and one junior put 12,000 sticky notes in the school before school hours. It happened on Monday. The students responsible were suspended for two days. The custodial staff member who let the students in was fired.

Students say they were given permission. They also say a school board member gave them a key.
