A spelling prank in a class photo for more than 600 seniors in the Houston area led to suspension of three students.

Some students wore T-shirts spelling out "CLASS" as part of "Class of 2010" in a formal shot.

But KHOU-TV reports in a later informal shot, students representing "C" and "L" moved from the front row, leaving behind an offensive three-letter word.

Administrators at Cypress Ridge High School cited the school's code of conduct and suspended the three students for three days. The penalty began Tuesday.

Senior Austin Knight said "C and L ran off" and it's not the fault of the three students, wearing A, S and S, who also were fined $135. The money will help pay the cost of retouching the photo.

Senior Raymond Carrigan said the students were "ignorant and disrespectful."
