TEXAS CITY— The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating how eight middle school students got their hands on a new form of liquid methamphetamine while at school last month.
Even as the criminal investigation continues, the school district has already taken action against the Blocker Middle School girls. Melissa Tortorici, Texas City school district spokeswoman, said privacy issues prevented her from disclosing what sort of punishment the girls received.
“We can generally state that the possession of a controlled substance on a school campus is a violation of the TCISD code of conduct and may result in expulsion to the Galveston County (Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program),” Tortorici said. “I can assure you that they are being punished.”
