(KMOV.com) - A series of senior pranks at Alton High School are now costing taxpayers and school officials said they’ve had enough.

"For me enough is enough when it starts to cost taxpayers money," Alton School Board president Edmond Gray told News 4.

Gray said the recent pranks of paper in trees, writing graffiti on walls and damage to locks could cost close to $5,000. Pranks at the high school are an annual tradition in Alton right before graduation

"I think when you have something like this each class believes they have to do a little bit more and that’s how it gets out of control,” Gray says.

 Gray said from now on, school officials may consider going to police to make the vandalism stop.
