Adams City High School was put on modified lockdown Friday morning after a student’s gravity bong — a device that uses the force of gravity to pull large amounts of cannabis into a chamber — released smoke in a classroom, officials said.
“As a precautionary measure our students were placed on a modified lockdown to limit movement throughout the school,” the school said in a release. “School resource officers and nurses are on site as a precautionary measure to address the needs of students if necessary.”
The smoke was released about 9:45 a.m. in the Commerce City school, said Breanna Deidel, a spokeswoman for the school district.
“Everybody is safe,” Deidel said. “The kid who did it is in the office meeting with the disciplinary team right now.”
A strong marijuana smell was released into the school, Deidel said. Several students were monitored by the school nurse before they were released.
The student was not identified.
