"We are working with the Police Department to plan the next steps to ensure there are no drugs in our schools and we are working with the Revere Department of Substance Use Disorder and Homeless Initiatives to plan educational programming for our students and families as well as for the larger Revere Community," the school said in a statement.
There was an emergency meeting at the school tonight, where they were going to discuss the next steps.
