Graduates Sickened by Substance at School's Grad Party

Posted: Updated:

Washoe County deputies are investigating after some students at a Catholic high school in Reno ingested an illegal substance at a "Safe and Sober" graduation party.
 
The acting president of Bishop Manogue High School, Jim Toner, tells the Reno Gazette-Journal (http://on.rgj.com/1bVCF5C ) that at least one student was taken to the hospital after the June 1 party.
 
He says it's unfortunate that the actions of a few students tarnished the school's reputation, and says it doesn't appear any student unknowingly ate the substance.
 
The overnight graduation party is a school tradition that involves students meeting at the school, going to Mass, having dinner, and going to a bowling alley and an arcade.
 
School officials say the event was cut short and parents were called when students started coming down sick.
