STRATFORD -- Students who wanted to celebrate the end of classes by driving their tractors to a Wisconsin high school were told to take their tractors home.
 
Three students drove their tractors to Stratford High School in north-central Wisconsin on Friday morning. But Principal Janeen LaBorde says the students failed to get advance approval to bring the tractors to school.
 
LaBorde would not say if the students were disciplined. But she tells News-Herald Media "their tractors went home."
 
The district does not have a written policy requiring students to get approval before bringing tractors on campus. But the principal says students were advised of the requirement in a school-wide announcement on Thursday.
 
The school's decision prompted criticism on social media.
