Friday (April 6, 2007), a day before spring break, pranksters covered the locks on all the exterior gates and doors at Carlsbad High School with super-strength glue.
“A teacher who always gets there early called me on my cell phone and said, ‘Guess what?’” said Carlsbad High School principal Margaret Stanchi. “But I didn’t guess this.”
About 100 doors had been completely sealed before the first staff arrived at around 6:30 a.m. at the San Diego high school.
Custodial staff were able to quickly unseal the lock on a building with 27 classrooms. The rest of the 3000 students had to sit in the gym until their classrooms were unlocked, one by one.
The school had a survellance video but it proved useless and didn’t give any clues as to who dunnit.
Police are still investigating.
Nice prank. It must have taken a long time for the person(s) to do it though.
