Garden City Police are investigating a report of 14 students found huffing at a local middle school.
Officers were called to Kenneth Henderson Middle School Friday by
School Resource Officers.
The preliminary investigation determined fourteen students were involved in the process of inhaling computer keyboard cleaner. The students had been huffing in the bathroom, as well as on a school bus.
One student was examined by a school nurse after displaying symptoms of huffing, and officers learned another student passed out on the school bus after huffing. Officers are continuing to investigate the case and affidavits for abusing toxic vapors will be filed on those students involved.
The Garden City Police Department encourages parents to research the dangers and symptoms associated with huffing. A link has been included below.
