Police arrested two male seniors at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, one for possession and one for distribution of ADD medication illegally, principal Alan Goodwin said. Police also questioned and searched five other male seniors but allowed them to return to class.
The investigation began at the beginning of second period, after a “concerned citizen” notified the administration, assistant principal Brandi Heckert said.
The two students, whom police took into custody, received the maximum school punishment of a ten-day suspension with a recommendation for expulsion and will face the zero tolerance penalty.
The investigation is ongoing, Goodwin said.
