It's not even streak week -- but the principal of Palto Alto High School says the streaking must stop.
The hard-line stance is Principal Kimberly Diorio's, after a group of boys dressed only in "face cloths" sprinted through the Paly campus at lunchtime on the first day of school.
In a message sent out to parents, Diorio called for an end to the "acts of naked showmanship," according to the San Jose Mercury News, and noted that in recent years the brazen buffoonery has become "worse."
Streaking is a popular and long-standing tradition at Paly, the newspaper reported, with tales from bygone years of boys running naked through an all-girls high school.
But the naked runs used to be an end-of-the-school-year prank -- never on the first day of school, noted Diorio, who added that from now on streaks will be punished with suspension and a visit with the school's on-site police officer.
Streaking incidents have become more brazen and more frequent, with a group of 20 female students in Native American attire romping through the school last year, the newspaper reported.
