Students charged in prank incident

        MADEIRA — Two Madeira High School students were charged with disorderly conduct following an authorized senior prank Wednesday in which students slept in tents at the high school courtyard.

        Alcohol was involved, according to Madeira's acting Police Chief Frank Maupin, although no citations involving alcohol were issued.

        More students are being investigated by the school district, said superintendent Michele Hummel.

        “Apparently some kids had a permit to camp in the school courtyard — an open area between a couple of buildings,” acting chief Maupin said. “It's a grassy area in the middle of the buildings. One of our officers got a loud noise complaint. As usual, some of the kids scattered and some didn't (when officers arrived).”

        The event was not chaperoned, the superintendent said.

        “Obviously anything involving a violation of school policy I'm disappointed with,” she said.

        Ms. Hummel said disciplinary action is still being considered.

        Charged with disorderly conduct were: Kathryn Heisel, 18, and Rachael Jebsen, 18.
