4th Grader Caught Smoking Pot In School, Faces Discipline

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — An elementary school student is facing punishment after Pittsburgh Public School officials say she was caught smoking marijuana in a school restroom.

Fourth graders at Pittsburgh Roosevelt in Carrick were just about to board buses for a field trip when officials say one of their classmates was caught smoking marijuana in a restroom.

The school sent home a letter to parents about the incident.

A district spokeswoman confirms the child was a fourth grade girl. Paramedics rushed her to the hospital because she felt sick.

Parent Crystal Smith told KDKA’s Kym Gable, “I have a child that’s actually in fourth grade. It’s crazy is what it is.”

Her daughter, Abby Roberts, added, “I was like, ‘Wow, why would somebody do this? You’re a fourth grader. You’re just trying to hurt yourself.’ It was scary. I saw the paramedics take her away.”

The letter says the girl was caught “thanks to the quick response of several students.”

It goes on to say: “Administration was alerted that a student was smoking marijuana in one of our restrooms. The fourth grader shared they had brought the used marijuana cigarette and lighter from home.”

A Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman told KDKA the girl will face disciplinary action.

Police could also file charges for smoking an illegal substance on school grounds.

The girl was released from the hospital.
