PTA at Dallas school meets to address recent drug overdoses

Posted: Updated:

An increase in overdose cases prompted a packed PTA meeting Monday night at a Northwest Dallas High School.

Dallas ISD Police say there have been around 30 drug-related incidents at Thomas Jefferson High School in recent weeks.

Parents and students were on hand Monday night to see what can be done to reduce that problem.

Police say this all stems from students abusing prescription drugs.

The exact number of overdoses out of the 30 drug-related reports has not been released.

Dallas ISD Police and the Dallas Police Department are watching students' social media accounts for clues to see how the kids are getting the drugs.
