ONTARIO – Two Ontario High School students have been expelled for selling or purchasing marijuana cookies at school last month.

District superintendent Lisa Carmichael summarized Monday the outcomes of three expulsion hearings held in the past week.

She said one student, a senior who made the cookies and sold them at school, was expelled with the expulsion held in abeyance. She is enrolled in an online educational program to complete her senior year and is not permitted to make up school work missed during her 10-day suspension. That student, who is identified in Ontario Police records as 18-year-old Ashley K. Mays, will not be permitted to attend graduation or to earn an Ontario High School diploma.

The senior is prohibited from accessing all Ontario school campuses. If she is found at any of the district’s schools, she may be arrested for trespassing or interfering with conduct of an educational institution.

A second student, a male sophomore, was expelled until the end of the year for purchasing and ingesting marijuana cookies at school and distributing cookies on two occasions. He also may not access any Ontario school campus during his expulsion. The student has a past disciplinary record and is not on track to graduate, according to Carmichael.

A third student who had a hearing for potential expulsion was not expelled and was permitted to return to school Monday after serving eight days of a 10-day suspension for purchasing and ingesting marijuana cookies at school on two occasions. The student, a male senior, will be permitted to make up certain work that he missed during his suspension that is required for graduation.

The third student had no prior disciplinary record, had good attendance and was “honest and cooperative from the very beginning of investigation through the expulsion hearing,” Carmichael wrote in a news release.

Mays is set to appear in Ontario Mayor’s Court April 6 on a first degree misdemeanor charge of adulterated food.
