DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Four students at a DeKalb County high school are suspended after holding what's being called a "piercing party".

The students all attend Cross Keys High School.

School officials tell 11Alive they skipped class to give each other piercings in different body parts.

They say the students shared the needle they used.

School leaders tell us the school's code of conduct prohibits any unsafe activity at school and they say sharing a needle qualifies as "unsafe" and a reason for a suspension.
