LANCASTER - Three high school students were expelled for the remainder of the school semester Tuesday for drug use on a school bus. All three will have the services of night school, said Ray Woolsey, superintendent of the Garrard County schools.
"They were snorting medicine that came from a medicine cabinet," Woolsey said.
According to Arch Lay, father of one of the expelled boys, the incident happened Sept. 18, but he was not notified of it until Sept. 25. He described the drugs as Loratabs, which are pain-killers.
Lay said his son was injured in an accident at home the Monday after the incident on the bus. He said it's possible the accident could have been attributed to the drug use and that he was unable to prevent it because no one from the school system told him his son had been snorting drugs.
"They're my children. I want to know immediately that it's going on," Lay said.
