A group of sixty high school seniors all rode bikes to school and were punished for it, after the principal described the incident as a prank.
The day before the last day of school 60 seniors who attend Kenowa Hills High School in Walker, Michigan, chose to all ride their bikes to school.
According to TreeHugger, the seniors did it safely and they even had a police escort with them. The mayor was also there with them. However, the principal of the school did not like it and he ended up suspending the students from attending a year's end celebration at the school.
According to the Huffington Post, the principle called the incident a prank, while students called in a celebration. One of the students who took part in the bike ride said that they were just celebrating their last day at school.
According to ABC, the principal did say she was sorry for her actions. The principal, Katharine Pennington, did say that the students did not inform her of what they were going to do.
Pennington also said that the incident, which took place on Tuesday, caused school employees to be late for work and that traffic in the area was tied up.
Pennington issued an apology to the community, students and to their parents for the way she handled the situation.
