TNN reports the parents of students attending Dellwood Middle School are concerned over a recent incident at the school, after a female student required medical treatment at the hospital after consuming a THC containing edible.

According to the report, the item was reportedly provided to her by a boy who also attends Dellwood.

Speaking with TNN, the parents claim the boy who provided the edible was suspended but he is due to return to classes soon – a situation they feel is untenable.

A Parent Teacher meeting was scheduled to take place at the school to discuss the situation.

The letter sent out to parents by the school was dated March 1st, and signed by the school’s Acting Principal, Trina Cariah.

The letter states: “I am writing to bring to your attention a matter of grave concern.

“There have been reports of student(s) selling and consuming edible products on school grounds.

“As educators and caregivers, it is our responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of all students.”

The acting principal also stated that the school takes this matter very seriously and will address the situation with urgency.

“Edible products, particularly products containing substances which are not suitable for consumption by minors, pose significant health threats,” she added.

“We are actively investigating these reports and are taking steps to eliminate the presence of such items on school premises.

“Any student found to be selling, sharing or consuming edibles will be dealt with in accordance with the Code of Conduct and the Police and DCFS will be involved.”

The report goes on to say that Ms Cariah urged parents to speak with their children about the dangers of consuming unknown substances, including edibles, and to remind their children of the importance of reporting any suspicious activity to school staff or administration immediately.

Ms Cariah concluded: “Our priority is to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment for all students. We appreciate your cooperation and support in addressing this issue with your children.”
