Yes, Vitamin C landed six students from p.s. duPont Middle School at the hospital according to an article from WDEL. One student apparently led other students to believe they were taking something else. As a precaution, the district sent all six kids to the hospital. I can’t wait to see that bill come in for the Brandywine School District! I’ve written about some crazy education stuff in Delaware, from pee issues to science experiments gone bad. Let’s add Vitamin C craziness to the list!
We are at a crossroads in Delaware education. When Vitamin C rings land kids in the hospital, we must act! We can no longer look away when children are ingesting drugs that will make them pee more. This is not something we can opt out of, these dangerous Vitamin cartels sweeping our schools. We must do what we have to do to keep our schools safe.
In all seriousness, this did happen. I do salute the school for taking the necessary precautions with this. But I would hate to get that bill Brandywine Chief Financial Officer!
UPDATED, 12:55pm: I just want to clarify. This article is satirical in nature, but this did happen. DRUGS ARE BAD! NO ONE SHOULD BE TAKING ILLEGAL DRUGS, ESPECIALLY STUDENTS!!!! The school did the right thing in this situation.
