WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- West Fargo High School seniors who piled sandbags in front of school entrances as a prank have been given garbage detail.

The students early this month piled about 2,000 sandbags left over from the spring flood fight about 3 feet high in front of doors.

Custodians had to bring in a tractor and loader so they could remove the bags so classes could start. Principal Gary Clark said one custodian hurt his back removing the sandbags.

Students involved have apologized to custodians and will pick up trash at two track meets next week. They also will collect donations for the American Red Cross. They will not have to pay overtime and equipment costs associated with the sandbag removal, as was planned earlier.
