One dude had medical supplies strapped to his arm, said Donte Dixon,a student. I seen him from a distance, he looked drowsy, like he just woke up.
Nine other students were checked out at the school.
Seeing ambulances at their children s high school sent some parents into a panic.
All I could think was school shooting or something, and no one could answer or tell me anything, said Jennifer Harbour. I think it s very disturbing that the parents have to find out this way.
Tests were being run to determine what, if anything,the students took.
