The brownie was sold between students who knew what was in it and was not sold openly to the student body, according to district officials.
"Due to the isolation of this incident, we did not report this to the entire West school community like we would for a weapons possession case, knife, look alike, etc," PCCS Communications Director Kate Dietrich said. "We did not feel the behavior of one student jeopardized the welfare of the whole student body, and are also trying to balance this with the privacy and confidentiality of the students involved. Clint Smiley and the West staff strive to provide a safe place to learn and we are vigilant in our efforts to keep all safe."
The district said all three students will be disciplined per the district’s student code of conduct guidelines.
According to the Middle School Student Handbook, students are not to bring medication to school unless prescribed by a physician. At no time is the student to keep the medication in his or her possession or to share it with others. The use, possession, or sale of illegal drugs will result in an automatic school suspension or expulsion, and involvement by local police authorities."We work with kids in preventative ways about the issue of alcohol or chemical abuse," Dietrich said. "We also teach kids every day not to put anything harmful into their body."
