XENIA — Xenia school officials are investigating a student who brought brownies laced with marijuana to the high school Wednesday.

According to Superintendent Denny Morrison, six students were involved and will face punishment. The police were not notified, however the school’s resource officer assisted district officials with the investigation.

“We know that the kids involved made a mistake in judgement and we are taking this matter very seriously,” Morrison said.

According to the district’s code of conduct “A student shall not use, sell or distribute, possess, buy be under the influence of, or smell of alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, or narcotics on school property or at any school sponsored event at any time. A student shall not use, possess, offer to sell or distribute, or buy counterfeit or look-alike drugs, or drugs represented to be narcotics. Possession of any type of drug paraphernalia is similarly prohibited.”

Morrison said any student found in violation of that policy “shall receive a 10 day suspension with a recommendation for expulsion.”

The names of those involved are not being released because they are juveniles.
