A day after nine students were treated for taking an anti-depressant medication, the principal of Nathan Hale Junior High School urged parents to talk to their kids about taking drugs.
FOX23 obtained a copy of the letter, which was mailed to Nathan Hale Junior High School parents.
On Tuesday, nine students were treated after they were caught taking anti-depressant medication.
The principal says her school has a zero tolerance policy and those students now face suspension.
In the letter the Principal Melissa Venable asks parents to quote "take this opportunity to talk to your students tonight about the dangers of taking medication that is not prescribed to them.” end quote.
In December, a student overdosed on hydrocodone and had to be hospitalized. The same day police arrested another student for possession of marijuana.
