'Vagina inspection' hoax at Prior Lake High School scrutinized by police


Police officers and postal inspectors are joining a Twin Cities-area high school in taking a closer look at a prank that instructed students to report for mandatory vagina inspections.

WCCO reports the hoax was written under the Prior Lake High School letterhead and used the school's return address.

[preserve][/preserve] FOX 9 says the letter was hand-delivered to about 50 mail boxes in the area. It instructs the high school's female students to report to the gym at an appointed time. The letter goes on to say that students must complete an inspection by the end of the school year and that seniors who do not pass an inspection will not graduate.

The Star Tribune reports Principal Dave Lund sent an email to parents assuring them the letter was a hoax, adding that administrators "are addressing the issue internally."

Lund tells the newspaper Prior Lake is trying not to dwell on the prank as the school year winds down: “We have a very good student body … and we are not going to let this prank diminish the positive performance of our students.”

KSTP reports that even though the letter was a prank the Savage Police Department says it is taking the investigation seriously. The station sampled reaction to the letter among students. Some found it inappropriate while others considered it funny.
