A Message from the Superintendent

message

Dear SPUSD Community,

 

Today, Friday, May 6th, the District Administration at Santa Paula Unified School District is aware that "edibles" were brought on to the Isbell Middle School Campus by a student and were offered to multiple other students.  At least six students have been identified as feeling ill and paramedics were requested on site to assist with evaluation of the students.

 

The School Site and District Office Administration are working with the Santa Paula Police Department to investigate and hold those accountable for the distribution of edibles to our students as well as use our resources to bring better awareness of the dangers of drugs to our students.  The District has a zero tolerance for this type of behavior and we will work to make sure this type of incident does not happen in the future.

 

Respectfully,

Jeffrey Weinstein, Superintendent
