The principal, Chris Dransoff, tells the Daily Herald the girl didn’t seem too concerned about being caught, “like it was kind of funny.”
Dransoff tells the newspaper the girl shared her chocolate milk in class with several classmates on Friday, Dec. 4, and one of them said it tasted “funny” and told the teacher.
The minimum penalty for alcohol possession by students in Glen Ellyn School District 41 is suspension, the maximum is a 10-day suspension with a recommendation of expulsion, the Daily Herald reported.
The girl’s parents have not been charged or cited, but police reports say an officer communicated with the girl and her parents about the legal consequences of her actions.
Police previously said no students appeared to be drunk after consuming the spiked milk.
