12:25 p.m. Tierney Tinnin, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma City Public Schools, said two eighth-graders came to school Thursday under the influence of some type of substance.
“They took some sort of drugs this morning together and came to school,” she said.
One of the male students was walking to class and passed out in the hallway shortly before 9:30 a.m. The other male student was found passed out in a classroom minutes later, Tinnin said.
She said paramedics soon arrived, and the students were alert when they left the school to be taken to the hospital.
School officials will investigate the incident and decide if disciplinary action against the students is necessary.
