Senior Prank Causes 'Stink' at Kaycee School

In what was called a “senior prank gone awry,” the Kaycee School was shut down Sunday evening and part of Monday morning while officials investigated a terrible smell emanating from the high school wing of the building.

Kaycee School Principal Dr. Andrea (AWN-dree-uh) Gilbert said she was contacted by one of the school's teachers Sunday night who reported that something had been sprayed on furniture in the wing that had a terrible smell.

Dr. Gilbert performed a walk-through of the building and then contacted law enforcement.
Powder River Fire District Chief Steve Haines cleared the building to start school at about 10 am Monday, but called in the Regional Response Team from Casper to try to identify the substance sprayed in the school.

Dr. Gilbert explains what happened next.

Dr. Gilbert said those responsible have come forward but declined to say anything further, citing privacy concerns.

The school has contacted a professional cleaning service to clean the wing of the school affected, which will be isolated until the cleanup is completed, but classes will continue as normal in the other wings through Thursday, the last day of school in Kaycee.
