WESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Officials say an adverse reaction to a prescription drug sent five West Virginia high school students to the hospital.

Lewis County High School Central Office Administrator Chris Derico told news outlets that officials think one student brought in the medication on Monday and shared it with others.

Derico says teachers noticed unusual behavior from one student, who was sent to the nurse’s office for evaluation. Shortly afterward, four other students went to the office with similar symptoms.

Officials couldn’t confirm what medication the students took, but say they are expected to fully recover.

Derico says an investigation is ongoing.
