“Generally, these are really good kids that made a very poor decision and have had a very stellar career through high school,” Ann Arbor Public Schools spokeswoman Liz Margolis said.
About 10 of the 31 were heavily involved in the May 5 hunt that also included cutting tennis nets at Huron High School, and spray painting the letter “P” on athletic fields of Huron and Skyline high schools, Margolis said. The rest of those suspended were either on the schools’ property or in cars.
Suspended students will be allowed to participate in the school’s graduation ceremony, but they will not be allowed to attend the all-night senior party June 2.
Leaders at Huron and Skyline high schools have accepted the punishments for the students and believe it to be adequate, Margolis said.
