    I dunno. i'm a VERY good student. i don't usually get in trouble for ANYTHING. i'm in my last year too. and i like this teacher. she's always been really nice to me. they're gonna think it's someone in my class cos no one else would've known. there are only about twelve of us. if i say nothng they won't find out right? it'll all blow over. it's not that big a deal surely?
    Exactly, you're a very good student in your last year with a teacher who you get on with. And you're right it's not a big deal, it's only a prank of an email. BUT by pretending it wasn't you, you're making it into a big deal, which would do much more harm when they eventually find out it was you.

    Maybe you shouldn't approach the teacher, but if you get asked if you know anything you should own up and apologise.

    Have you spoken to your mum about it?

    actually no - she would never believe i was pregnant. i'm not the type. AT ALL. and she knows it. That's why I did this one. I'm a good student. Always have been. That's why I did it. Not too obvious, understated and concerning.
    haha ok. don't worry though, you're getting too worried over it, i know it's hard not to when everyone's getting angry but essentially what you've done is a bit silly but nothing AT ALL serious by anyone's standards. just think of all the things the school will have had to deal with.. bullying, drinking, smoking, drugs, vandalism etc.. have you done any of this? no. even if you had texted in class, which you haven't, it's not a big deal at all. if they ask you just explain that it was a pretty bad april fool's joke on your mother and you sent fake emails. at worst they'll think you're stupid for doing it but they'll forget it and move on! xx

    yeah my mum knows it was me and doesn't want to get me in trouble. But the thing is, if no one says anything (which they won't) then there's no way they could find out right?

    Actually i was texting in class - i was texting my mum to ask her to pick me up after school. that's what made it believable.

    but it's the easter hols in a week. surely it'll have blown over by then right? it's not like it's a big full scale problem. just an april fools. i haven't hurt anyone or stolen anything.
    What's the fuss? Although it doesn't sound all that funny - perhaps it's a context thing - you've not done anything remotely wrong. Why lie about it? If your schoolteacher disagrees, he/she disagrees - and obviously lacks a sense of humour. If you think it was funny, then just say that.

    Really, some people seem to love complicating issues.

    Wrong, I know someone at my school who got caught by the IT department and suspended for a week, but that was for sending a malicious email to other students who got really upset. The IT people can see exactly what you've been up to.

    Plus there's a pretty good chance that you're clearly lying if you get questioned about it, so it's probably best not to take that chance. There's no way they'll take any action against you if you own up and apologise, but if they catch you out after you've lied then they might.

    If worst comes to worst, get your mum to ring in and tell them it was all a big misunderstanding.

    Ok. Let's go through the possibilities.

    What if they check the internet records? The accounts have all been deleted and I can argue that I was checking my email (nothing wrong with that). The only other girl from my class who was there was also checking her email. The email could've been sent from somewhere else. My mum didn't say what time the email was sent or from what messaging service so if my mum says it was from e.g. googlemail then I can argue well I only have a hotmail account (which is true). The email could've been sent from someone's house after they went home or from their phone even.

    What if they ask the class? Or the year? If no one says anything then they can't find out right? Plus it's not THAT big a deal. Right? The teacher thinks it is... and the head of sixth form probably will.

    it's easter soon and cos it's not THAT big a deal it'll hopefully be forgotten right?

    My mum knows cos she asked me and has phoned up the school to tell them that she didn't realise but it's april fools day today and it's just a joke. they seem to get that it's a joke but they might still go and ask around. i'm just worried it's gonna turn into something big. even if it does, no one can find out cos no one will say anything.

    Just play dumb. The email shouldn't be able to be traced back to you so really you're in the all clear. Just do something less dramatic next April Fools eh! lol! I'm sure things will just blow over after a while at school, they have no leads afterall.
    BUT if they manage to backtrace it, then OP will have dun goofed, and...

    Consequences.

    Will Never.

    Be.

    The Same.

    Trust me, if you own up and put it to bed it will be forgotten about much sooner than if you try and let it blow over. Don't worry about what the head of sixth form will think, most of the time the reality is never as serious as what you fear.
