Parents demand action in heroin case

Parents in Fallsburg, New York want to know who’s leaving heroin and needles in a faculty men’s room at Cosor Elementary School. Six teachers and an aide have refused a police request for urine samples, reports the Times Herald-Record

Heroin was discovered in late December and again in February. Camera footage identified eight people who used the bathroom before the latest discovery.  One, a contract employee, provided a urine sample. The teachers and aide hired lawyers and refused to cooperate.

At a school board meeting, parents demanded action. Tressa Evans said her two daughters were suspended for five days for circulating a party flier that mentioned marijuana and alcohol; two other students received 30-day suspensions. ”My daughters got suspended because of a piece of paper,” she said. “But you have these teachers who are sitting here with drugs in the school.”
