WYANDANCH, N.Y. (AP) - Two Long Island high school varsity football players have been suspended amid an investigation into bullying pranks in the locker room.

Wyandanch Memorial High School district officials say the students were suspended from classes for two days last week but not from playing football.

In a statement, Wyandanch board said “there is a zero-tolerance policy in the Wyandanch school district for any kind of unnecessary physical contact.” It said more suspensions were expected.

Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1zeKJ2z ) says the district is encouraging students who know something to come forward.

The nature of the bulling was not disclosed.
