2/21/2024 - Colerain MIddle School Notice

Colerain Middle Families, 
This afternoon our Administration was made aware that students within one of our classrooms ingested cannabis infused gummy bears. Two of the students were taken to the hospital for further testing and care. No life threatening treatments were needed. All other students involved were released into the care of their parents.
This matter is a huge concern, as not only the safety of our students was jeopardized today but their health was also endangered due to poor and reckless decision-making. We are thankful for the quick response of our local emergency teams and the Colerain Township Police to get our students the care they needed. 
We place the safety of our students as our highest priority. Using, sharing or having possession of any type of drug(s) on or off school campus is illegal and is strictly prohibited. We will continue to investigate this matter to identify all parties involved and will apply appropriate consequences based on the Code of Conduct.
As you know, we set a high expectation around exhibiting Cardinal Character at all times. We teach our C.A.R.D.S to be Caring, Accountable, Respectful, Dynamic and Safe. What took place today was not in alignment with our CMS Motto. As we move forward, we are asking that our parents join us in talking with students about the importance of making good decisions daily, and also about the dangers of drug use and possession. Please take some time to read over our CMS Handbook, which has been linked to talk with your student about adhering to the policies here at school. Safety is first and foremost so any violation of the Student Code of Conduct will receive discipline. We want all of our students to feel safe coming to school so they can focus on learning.    
Please feel free to contact me if you have additional questions, 
Colerain Middle School Administration
