Student Who Took Cocaine to School Reunited With Mother

    An elementary school student who took cocaine to school and shared it with other students will be reunited with his mother.

    The boy had been in foster care since the incident last week, but at a Tuesday hearing, D.C. Superior Court ruled the boy can go back to his mother.

    Four elementary students at Thomson Elementary School were taken to a hospital Thursday after they either sniffed or swallowed the drug they got from the boy. Officials said at the time they were fine but had sore throats.

    The student was charged with possession of a controlled substance. The Office of the Attorney General will decide how to proceed.

    It was the fifth time this school year that a student had been reported with drugs at a school, according to a District of Columbia Public Schools spokesman. At least twice the substance was marijuana.
