Police and MCFRS Respond to Student Overdose at Kennedy High School

by Patrick Herron

A student at John F. Kennedy High School at 1901 Randolph Rd in Silver Spring overdosed at the school around noon on Tuesday, according to a report by WJLA/ABC7. In a letter to the Kennedy community, Principal Dr. Joe L. Rubens said, “Montgomery County Fire and Rescue and Montgomery County Police responded to our school immediately. Parents were contacted and the student was transported to the hospital.”

A 15-year-old Kennedy student died of a suspected overdose earlier this month, according to a Fox 5 report, which prompted county leaders and law enforcement to hold a meeting on January 19 to discuss the rise in opiod use, especially Fentanyl, among Montgomery County youth. Montgomery County Police tells us that “The call was received at approximately 12:01 pm. Officers responded for a student who may have overdosed. More information will be released as it becomes available.” We will update this story when additional information becomes available.
