Popping prescription pills lands two Bryan high schoolers in the hospital. The incident happened at the Special Opportunity School, a discipline alternative school.

BISD officials say a student brought prescription sedatives to campus, and shared them with two other students. The district says those two students had a reaction to the drugs, and were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

In this case, district employees say the students are doing fine. However, they warn parents to keep prescription drugs out of the hands of kids.

"This would be a good opportunity for parents to remind their students not to accept pills from someone else because they don't know what they are and they don't know what affect that they could have," said BISD Director of Communication, Sandy Farris.

Because the pills didn't belong to the student who brought them, the student may be suspended pending the investigation. The students who took the pills may also face consequences.
