Cascade administration revokes suspensions

CLAYTON — Suspensions have been lifted and Cascade High School students were allowed to return to class after a Thursday morning meeting between administrators, parents, and the students.

The suspensions will not reflect on the students’ academic record. However, the day for protesting students who were suspended, will be reflected as an absense against them.

Nearly 50 students were suspended on Wednesday for two days, following a senior prank that involved after hours entry into the building and placing thousands of sticky notes around the school.

Initially, five seniors and one junior were suspended for two days and a custodian, Kim Rouse, who has worked for the corporation for about a year, was fired for allowing them to place the Post-it notes around the school.

The six students involved in the prank will receive in-school suspensions for their actions and the school corporation has now decided not to fire Rouse.

The school officials’ initial reaction to suspend the students and fire Rouse did not sit well with fellow students, who staged a protest and sit-in at the school gym on Wednesday.

Anthony Canaday, one of the initial students who was suspended, said, “You see how many people have been pulled out and been suspended, and it’s just building up more and more.”

Mill Creek Schools Superintendent Dr. Pat Spray said Wednesday morning, “(The students) were suspended for conducting a protest during the school day and refusing to comply with administrators, who gave them directives.”

Spray said the cause for the initial suspensions was that the students were in the building unauthorized.

”We had some students access the building, unauthorized, and conducted, on the surface, a very harmless prank, as far as damage to the building,” he said. “Nothing was damaged and nothing was hurt, and we are lucky. Students were all over that building, unsupervised, doing different things in different classrooms, offices, hallways.”
