HARTFORD — Brownies laced with marijuana were brought into Hartford High School last month, school officials say.
Superintendent Andrew Hubbard, in a letter to parents Tuesday, reported that on Sept. 26, the high school was alerted by Michigan State Police that an anonymous tip came into the OK2SAY tip line that students were consuming marijuana laced brownies in at the high school.
“Mr. (Principal Dave) Janicki and his staff immediately acted on the tip and started an investigation,” Hubbard said. “Through their investigation, we have confirmed that brownies laced with marijuana were brought into the school and distributed to several students.”
He said all individuals involved are being dealt with according to district policies and student handbooks.
The Hartford Police Department is conducting a criminal investigation.
Hubbard gave parents some online resources to further educate their children about the dangers of drugs. He also asked parents to discuss with their children that they can report any potential danger to themselves or others to a staff member directly, the school website’s anonymous tip line or OK2SAY.
“Prompt action will help the administration investigate and deal swiftly with any such issue,” he said. “We will continue our unwavering commitment to make the safety of our students and staff the top priority at Hartford Public Schools.”
