SAN DIEGO -- Patrick Henry High School issued yearbooks to the senior class on Friday and by Monday, the school was desperately trying to recall the annuals.

After the first batch of yearbooks was released, someone noticed a small picture showing a group of female students. People who have seen the picture say the girls are in a dog pile wearing bikinis flashing the "shocker" sign, which implies a sex act using one's fingers. The girls are said to have also placed letters on their upper arms that, upon closer inspection, spell out another sex act.

"Apparently it must've just slipped its way in there," said Joseph Zizzo, a sophomore at the school. "Most of the girls in the picture got a lot of privileges taken away."

Since Friday, Zizzo and other students have been issued yearbooks that have been altered by the school with a large triangular sticker that has been placed over the picture.

"You can kind of peel it off,” said student Wyatt Johnson. “If you do it carefully and the whole page doesn't rip, you can still see it,"

The school's principal sent a letter to parents apologizing for the mistake.

"I sincerely apologize that we did not catch the error prior to senior distribution or even before it went to print," wrote Patrick Henry's Principal Listy Gillingham.
