My question is, who tipped off the school officials? Someone should get this poor little girl a t-shirt.
An 11-year-old graduate of Norwood’s DARE program has been caught with pot at school.This is my first blog post ever, kids! I'm already hooked. We might have to become Students for Sensible Blogging Policy. This is so addictive, it should be Schedule I. Someone tell HHS!
Police said the girl, who is not being identified, had “a small amount” of marijuana in her locker.
Police Officer Richard Giacoppo, the resource officer at the middle school, said the presence of drugs is an unfortunate reality in schools today, but admitted Monday’s incident “was really unusual for that age group.”
Police said school officials acted on a tip and went looking for the pot. The girl was not arrested but will be summoned to juvenile court.
Giacoppo declined specific comment on the 11-year-old caught by the school, but said she had graduated from the school’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education program.
Appendix: I don't think 11 year olds should have pot or any other drugs in school. And it should go without saying that SSDP does not support children that young using drugs recreationally. Finally, I am glad this girl was not arrested and is heading to juvenile court instead of municipal or criminal court. But snitching is wrong -- unless people are in danger.
