CYPRESS, Texas, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Officials at a Texas high school said three students were suspended and fined for spelling a rude word in a senior class photo.

Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District officials said the three Cypress Ridge High School students were wearing T-shirts with letters to spell "Class of 2010" during last month's photo shoot but a different word was spelled when the students rearranged for a second photo, KHOU-TV, Houston, reported Wednesday.

Administrators said they did not believe the three students' claims the "ass" spelling was unintentional and the three were suspended, fined $135 each and removed as officers from various clubs and student organizations.

"Three students were disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct," the district said in a statement.

Officials said the fines paid by the students will go toward retouching and reprinting the photo.
