SONORA (CBS SF) — Three third-grade students at a Sonora elementary school were busted for smoking pot in the school’s bathroom last week.
Two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old were caught by another student, who immediately informed school administrators.
Those officials then alerted local police.
The students were questioned by officers, and later released to their parents on February 27th.
Sonora Elementary School Principal Chris Boyles would not speak with CBS SF regarding the case, but Superintendent Leigh Shampain confirmed that the students were caught smoking marijuana in the school’s bathroom.
He would not discuss how the students might be disciplined.
“(I’m) shocked. To be in third grade and have their own pipe,”
parent Linda Rodriguez commented to KTXL-TV.*
“I think they should be expelled, but I also think they should follow it further to where they found (the drugs).”
The case was forwarded to the Tuolumne County Probation Department.
