ALGONQUIN, Ill. (WGN TV – May 9, 2014) – Inside the halls at Jacobs High in Algonquin– baby oil, water, dish soap and plastic– the ingredients for this year’s senior prank.

As you can hear from the crowd’s reaction, it’s a big hit with the students.

As for school administrators it is anything but.

The two students who organized the prank are facing disciplinary measures that may include not being able to participate in graduation ceremonies.

Friday on campus, some juniors say school officials are being too hard on the seniors involved.

School officials called police and the school was put on lockdown. The technical term is shelter in place, while the slip-n-slide was cleaned up.

School administrators were concerned the messy prank created unsafe conditions.

On Friday evening, parents were weighing in on the possible punishment of barring at least two students from graduating and maybe more as a bit extreme.
