Weather forced students home early from school Firday but shortly after the students left, Jeanne Robinson, a science teacher at Lafayette High School, told Principal Mike McKenzie she was sick to her stomach because something was put in her drink.

Robinson was taken by ambulance to an emergency room at Central Baptist Hospital. Meanwhile, the Principal and police are investigating what happened.

Specifically, what exactly was placed in the drink and who did it.

McKenzie says if he finds out who is responsible for putting something in the teacher's drink, he plans to hand down serious consequences.

No word on Robinson's condition at this time.

    I am writing this to tell you that i did this. It was a prank gone wrong but never the less it was COMPLETLEY UNCALLED FOR. this was completley my fault and no reflection of my parents job as parents. i have great parents that love the lord and do a great job. i was severely punished for those of you who wanted to know. i was charged criminally and officaily expelled from school. i wanted to take this oppritunity to sincerely and publicly apologize to mrs robinson, the students of lafayette, mr mike mckenzie, and anyone else who was involved. this is many months after the event and after the judgements so this is not an attempt to 'get out of trouble'. i am sincerely sorry and this was unnaceptable behavior. i learned not to make irrational desicions through this. i miss my friends at lafayette especially everyone in SCAPA creatve writing. i hope everyone who reads this accepts my humble appoligy.

    The type of poisen is known, but I can't remember it. The person was a feshman, and rumor has it he was expelled, and is in juvie, and he deserves worse than that. I can't believe something like that would happen at a school as good as Lafayette.

    We are socially inept. I didn't interact with other kids and I don't know how to act in public places. I'm backwards, shy and can't look a person in the eye. Gee, thanks Mom for being so protective that I couldn't go to a regular school. Yeah, I can spell, do math and other things very well, but I don't do well in a job interview. Yep, home schooling is wonderful if you want your kid to be a nerd.

    Things like this is the reason parents do want to homeschool thier children. It's not safe to send your kids to school these days. The first mistake was taking paddling out of school and now if you bust your childs butt, they yell child abuse, but then when they act up at school they take you to court and tell you that you need to control your kids. Okay. Let's give out high school child a time out. Like that's gonnna work. When I was a child I got my butt busted and I didn't act up or disrespect a teacher or parent or elder person. I knew better. That's what's wrong with kids today. We have kids killing kids, this world has gotten so horrible the past several years. Teachers and principals are afraid of students but the parents get the blame. Kids know what they can and can't do. They know that noone can put their hands on them.

    This would probably not have happened if the media had not reported the incident that happened at Madison Southern. Students do watch the news and that is probably how this student got the idea to do this terrible act. Yes I understand that somethings need to be reported on the news, but this kind of thing just gives other students ideas. Plus the teacher at Madison Southern never took a drink because she smelt it first, so it should not have been reported anyways.

    As a young adult, growing up in a public school district I have seen and heard just about everything imaginable. Too much blame is being put on the parents, which in this case may be, but most of the time it's who your children are surrounded by. Most of the time you can't choose who is around you and what impacts they may or maynot have on your life. Instead of assuming the worst and calling this child a ' hooligan ' step back and think it could be your child that falls to peer pressure instead of ' evilness. ' Eventhough this was an extreme case people DO make STUPID mistakes and yes, he will pay and hopefullly learn from his actions. Any thing can happen to anyone at anytime no matter where, who, or how you were raised/ raising your children. So lets all take the time to pray for all families involved. God bless
