Ibarra said that a school resource officer looked into the incident and found that a female student had brought cookies from home that contained marijuana.
Ibarra said there may have been another student who got sick but may have been taken to the hospital by a parent.
Ibarra said police continue to investigate the incident. He did not have information on the status of the student who allegedly brought the cookies to school.
