ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KSDK) - The superintendent of the City of St. Charles School District says any student who takes part in TPing or pranks will be banned from all homecoming activities, including the assembly, parade, and dance.
Last weekend teens from a St. Charles high school toilet papered a home in the 1300 block of Edinburgh Drive. The homeowner, Daniel W. Beauchamp, grabbed a shotgun and fired, hitting a neighbor's vehicle.
Beauchamp was charged with three counts of unlawful use of a weapon.
Superintendent Jeff Marion released a letter to all students in the school district this week, emphasizing pranks like TPing is considered trespassing and you can never anticipate how a homeowner will respond.
Marion says more significant disciplinary action may be taken if any prank results in damage or physical injury. He says any parent who participates in TPing, including driving a vehicle, may also be banned from campus for homecoming activities.
He wants parents to speak with their children about making good decisions.
