- Holtsville, N.Y. (AP) -- Some Long Island eighth graders apparently got an early start on April Fool's Day pranks on Friday, when they handed out doughnuts laced with laxatives to classmates, school officials said.
There were no apparent injuries, although ambulances were dispatched to the Sequoya Middle School as a precaution, a spokeswoman for the Sachem School District said.
"Approximately 18 students ate the doughnuts," the district said in a statement. "Although the students are feeling well, the school is taking precautionary measures."
Police were investigating and parents were been informed about the situation. Classes proceeded as usual, but parents were given the option to pick up their children.
The district said it would take "appropriate disciplinary action."
