The Higley Unified School District is still investigating several pranks that took place Friday at Williams Field High School.

According to Teddy Irvine, assistant superintendent for secondary students, there were several incidents, including tampering with a fire sprinkler that resulted in water damage to a classroom building. There was also a food fight during the first lunch period and damage around campus from shaving cream and water balloons.

"There have not been decisions made about consequences because the investigation is still ongoing," Irvine said Monday. "The administrative team at Williams Field has interviewed many, many students and teachers today collecting statements."

Parents on Friday received a letter stating the district plans to pursue criminal charges against some of those involved.

Friday afternoon district employees assessed the damage, and started cleanup, but costs are still unknown.

"I don't know if a decision will be reached today or tomorrow. The district is still looking at charging some students," she said, noting there may be different consequences depending on which event a student was involved with.

According to Friday's letter, the students may not only face charges, but restitution and short- or long-term suspension. Any seniors could be banned from participating Wednesday's graduation ceremony, the letter states. This is the first year Williams Field High will be graduating seniors.
