Adolescents, without authorization, inserted inappropriate content into a design file for the books and school officials were unsuccessful at trying to conceal the print with stickers.
The middle school has since confiscated most of the yearbooks, about 750.
School officials learned of the breach about three weeks ago – after the books were already at the printer.
“When students at Cascade Middle School got their books this week, it was soon obvious the stickers could be peeled off, and adults hadn't caught all the objectionable material,” AP reports.
Principal Stephanie Bennett said the books could be reprinted, if $10,000 can be raised.
Bennett says she hopes the hackers will make restitution.
