Balloons in stairwell at Arlington High, May 18, 2012

Leaf blowers are not the only issue providing hot air in Arlington. Check out the balloons at Arlington High School. 

In a prank by seniors discovered May 18, interim Principal Mary Villano told parents what happened.

Photos included in an email Monday, May 21, showed what was waiting for school staffers when they arrived that Friday. "The entire stairwell from the cafeteria leading up to the main lobby near media center was filled with balloons," she wrote. 

"I later discovered there were 3,300 of them. It was quite a spectacle and started the day off with lots of laughs and excitement. Many of you probably saw pictures that your children took on their phones.

"Our administrative team fully enjoyed the prank as it was done in good taste and did not have any negative impact on the school.

"I have heard about other senior pranks that turned into nightmares, caused significant damage to school property, and considerably disrupted the school day. I congratulate our senior pranksters who put careful thought into doing something fun that did no harm and did not disrupt the school day. 

"They even made sure that they would clean it up so that the custodians would not have extra work.

"We left the display up for an hour or so to let all students and staff see it,  but then had to 'pop them' to clear the stairwell for safety purposes. (I am sure the firefighters out there are breathing a sigh of relief)."
