The school has launched a full investigation into who supplied it and when and where it was consumed. The superintendent says the distribution, sale, and possession of an illegal substance on school property is a violation of their code of conduct and there are consequences.

Patton says the student's parents were notified immediately.

The student is expected to be okay.
