(KMOX) - Ahh the high school senior prank. A time-honored tradition that lives on. But rather than threats of arrest, police in Wisconsin are praising the graduating students.

Cumberland police posted images to their Facebook page on Monday, calling it "one of the best senior pranks that Cumberland High School has seen."

The Cumberland School Distritct said in a Facebook post, "Graduation week... Nice work seniors! You had everyone a little nervous this morning! The police department is saying this senior pranks was 'one of the best senior pranks that Cumberland High School has seen.' Students positioned an old junker strewn with loose bricks in front of what appeared to be a gaping black hole in the building's side, just outside the principal's office. It wasn't actually a hole, though. Using tape and a black tarp, the students created the illusion of damage, making it look like the car crashed into the side of the building."

Seniors "crashed" a car into their school and mocked up the scene complete with yellow police tape and cast off bricks.  The very realistic looking stunt did not damage school property.
