Eden Prairie High School administrators have reprimanded more than 100 students and suspended some from sports and other extracurricular activities after obtaining Facebook photos of students partying, several students said Tuesday.
School administrators and the district’s spokeswoman didn’t return phone calls, but students called in by their deans over the past two days said they were being reprimanded for the Facebook party photos, which administrators had printed out. It’s likely, they said, that other students among the 3,300 who attend Eden Prairie will be questioned throughout the week.
Danny O’Leary, a senior who plays lacrosse, said his dean displayed four Facebook photos of O’Leary holding drinks and told him he was in “a bit of trouble.” One photo shows him holding a can of Coors beer, another a shot of rum, he said. In yet another, O’Leary is pictured holding his friend’s 40-ounce container of beer.
