DeLAND, Fla. — As the end of another school nears in Central Florida, senior pranks on campus are not uncommon.


But district officials didn’t find some of the actions at DeLand High School early Monday very funny.

Volusia County Schools told Channel 9 that walls on campus were spray painted.

Police then handed the matter over to the school district.

VCS said students who were found in violation of the student code of conduct are being disciplined accordingly.
