Alcovy High student charged in marijuana-laced brownie incident

COVINGTON -- Two Alcovy High School students decided to try a little something different for breakfast Monday morning.

"One child had baked brownies and put marijuana in them, wrapped them up and took them to the bus stop where she gave some to the other child who ate them," said Newton County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Keith Crum.

Both students were 16-year-old females and the incident occurred sometime between 7:25 and 9:30 a.m.

Once the students arrived at school, the girl who ate the brownies began to feel sick and complained of stomach pains, dizziness and feeling tired, Crum said.

"She went to the nurse and told her she had eaten brownies laced with marijuana and the principal was notified and the resource officer was notified," Crum said. "They were able to identify the student who brought the brownies and discovered more brownies in her possession."

Crum said the student was suspended from school pending a hearing and her parents were notified. She was charged with possession of marijuana less than an ounce and turned over to Juvenile Court. The brownies have been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for testing.

According to Sherri Davis-Viniard, director of public relations for the Newton County School System, the mother of the student who ate the brownies said she took her daughter to the doctor and she is fine and is not experiencing any medical complications.

Why does this suprise me at all? Alcovy is full of drugs and thugs! Notified the Principal ! What did she do? Tell them to go see Lindsey to get them out of trouble? Get lost Carpenter and your husband too!! We don't need drugs in our schools. Do we know if these students were suspended? This is where our tax dollars are being wasted! I hope they are tired as adults!

I hear that place is infested with drugs. And they bring them because there is little chance of being caught and punished. The only reason these two were caught is becauuse one got sick. Sad

I live just past Alcovy and I can see all sorts of things happening once school lets out!! I hear of gangs stealing from the gas station down the road!! I have seen what appears to be drug deals made in parking lot!! I feel that we should hold our school leaders accountable and end this drug mess.

I bet I know why they were getting high before school cause of the lovely discipline rules they have which is NONE. Let's face it had the girl not got sick they would har gotten away with it and the master plan would have gone beautifully.

What a shame this is and what a shame that all of this is a reflection on well we won't say or we may get sued.

.ok fun time is over. Yes we have a drug problem in the county yes drugs are in all 3 high schools. It is time we stop lawsuits blogs and grandstanding politics and work together to solve the problem. Has one Blog Post changed anything for the better for education in Newton County No. Has the lawsuit help education in Newton County NO. While all sides are pointing fingers at each other another 1/3 rd of our seniors will not graduate. So lets all stop. And let’s help our children .

This school is out of control. Why is the BOE scared to make a change at this cess pool. If my child had to go to this school I would not be able to sleep. Look at Eastside they are doing something right and it starts with the administration and goes down through the staff. This school needs a change or it will become a danger to the whole county. BOE stand up and take your school back.

The problem is the BOE, change must start at the top! Sadly it looks like nothing is being done to correct any of the problems. All these problems are a refelction of the BOE leadership (none), how proud they must be of themselves!

Frustrated 2 years ago

The BOE will never change anything as long as the Chamber of Commerce keeps putting pressure on them. The more business that comes in the more money the BOE will have to play with. I hate to know they are satisfied with the way things are going at ALcovy.

i'm sure a lot of things happen everywhere but this is one more indication that the leadership at this school is not working - the counseling is not working - the teachers ARE working - the principal is not qualified based on past experience to lead a school with these challenges and the scores show it and the conflict of interests between the husband overseeing her budget and employees is wrong wrong wrong

Why don't yall take all this mess to the Board. Be at every meeting and don't let it die down. Hound them with this. Ask them what are they doing about it? What are the plans to clean up this mess? Call the police every time you see ANYTHING going on. You can't just let this go. Hound the BOE, hound the police, sheriff, hound the State!!! Do not let this go! Make sure you put everything in writing. This has got to stop!!

How often does the county utilize their drug dogs at the school , or have they ever ?? It should be done 3 times a week !! The thing is drugs , are heavily present at all three High Schools and Middle Schools in this County and every other in this country . Why are you people acting as AHS is the only place that the problem exists. I went to NCHS over 20 years ago , and there was just as much of it going on then as now. Morons !!!

I am a grauate of the 70's from Newton County High school, Parents need to be more responsible of their children, The schools need to be more strict, The B O E needs to do thier job instead of being a butch of non caring dummies , do away with the political correct. When I was going to school if you got in trouble at school you would get a whipping from the teacher, principal, then when you got home the parents would be ready to take you to the wood shed. So everybody stop blaming and do each other job the way it should be done.

Satan69 2 years ago

Hey covingtonian how about holding everyone responsible parents, and school because it isn't all fault of just one. What's sad is you want to attack everyone and when something is said you don't like you jump to the offensive.

I agree parents should be held accountable as well as the school if they have knowledge of any drugs present it is their job to take the necessary mearustes is it not? So you can't always blame the parents.

I also agree with newtonqq because The carpenters and Lindsey need to vanish tey are the biggest pains I have ever seen. Every breath someone takes they want to depose someone or get information. Nothing has been done to those people accept the truth followed by opinion. Some can't stand to see themselves negatively.

1

Covingtonian 2 years ago

And who does like seeing themselves in a negative light? "Measures" you mean? Did you mean they? I just highlighted these to see how you take being critiqued, a form of criticism or a way to see yourself "negatively" as you put it. Is that "offensive" enough for you? That's a rhetorical question by the way.

this cracks me up! I have a way to settle it all rezone The Silos of Ellington to all 3 schools and you will see where majority of the problems are coming from! I went to school in Dekalb and we had lock downs and drug sniffing dogs come thru and guess what if you had drugs on you then you were busted and kicked out of our school! Once again thats why i am paying for private school!

There is definitely 5 parts to the Ellingtons the silos just being one ... i'm just saying .

move the silos to newton. They are closer to them anyway that will save fuel in buses DUh.

add more east newton to alcovy. and take more of newtons and move it to east side.

Oh by the way the silos is closer to Newton high at 5 miles the next closes is east side at 10 mile Alcovy 15 miles. donot take my word map quest direction.

Guess what we have here is a prime example what it doesn't take to graduate from high school in 2012. That is, one does not need to know how to spell (even with the help of spell check), structure a simple and complete sentence, use proper punctuation, proper capitalization, etc. I realize times have changed but the fact is we still need to be able to communicate clearly to succeed in this (and even yesterdays) world. We learn these basic communications skills by paying attention while we are in a classroom rather than practicing our verbal "social communications" skills.

Odd there hasn't been a story about the gun found in the theme school a week ago.

The simple fact is, is that parents with any means or responsibility whatsoever are going to: a. Homeschool b. Charter school c. private school d. Move

That's what parents in Clayton and Dekalb did. Unfortunately, when they moved here, they brought their little problems with them. But at least the parents TRIED to enable something better for their children. In 10 years, it will be Morgan county that inherits this mess from those choosing d above. The point is, is do not settle for the status quo. Vote 'Yes' to the amendment on the ballot in November and vote in Mr. Corkery to the school board. Our children and their parents desperately need options.

Could someone please explain how the principal and her attorney are responsible for something that this girl did at home. The brownies that made the other girl sick were consumed before she got to school, according to this story.

Santan69 Thanks for your support!! Seems the Carpenter's got another person as a new ally Mr. Hall. He said Medors should stop writting his weekly articles because it does not show a good Newton school system. Can I ask that the Carpenter's stop suing people for free speech? Their conduct has not made one improvement to our schools!

0

Satan69 2 years ago

No problem at all Newtonqq I happen to be a strong supporter in the freedom of speech. It burns me up that these creeps think they can just talk and do as they please. I can't believe the gall of Hunter Hall really asking the vice chair to stop writing his columns that is just in poor taste. It doesnt show a good NCSS because there isn't one and that's why he wants it hid to make newton county look flawless well sorry buddy not happening. There is no such thing as perfect every school system has flaws maybe not as big as this but who knows? Mr Hall, Mr Mathews and Mr and Mrs Carpenter should just all go live in another part of the county and it can be called liars corner.

I mean these people can't and won't stand up for there own board members let alone care what the parents truly think.
