THS alert

The conditions of four Temple High School students who required medical attention between noon and 12:30 p.m. Thursday wasn’t known by press time.

Campus staff reacted quickly, Temple Independent School District spokesman Christian Hernandez said in a news release to the Telegram.

Scanner traffic said four students at the high school overdosed, but Hernandez said it wasn’t known if the cases were related.

Parents of the students were notified on what was just the second day of classes for TISD students.  

Two students were transported to the hospital, and two students were released to their parents at the school immediately following the incident, Hernandez said. 

Prior to the report about the four students, scanner traffic said a 14-year-old male THS student was unresponsive but was breathing.

It was only a very few minutes before the second call was dispatched over the scanner.

Emergency medical staff was sent to the school, and campus emergency response was activated. Both police and medical personnel evaluated the students, Hernandez said.

The Temple Police Department’s School Resource Office responded to the school at about 12:15 p.m., Cpl. Shawana Neely said. The report was that students were acting strangely.

The officer found the four students and EMS was called, Neely said.

The ages of the students weren’t known Thursday, she said.

Temple Police spokeswoman Ellen Morton didn’t know how many officers responded to the campus, she said.

All gates to the campus were still closed at 1 p.m.
