Winchester Public Schools (WPS) issued a message to parents and guardians of two drug related concerns.

Schools nationwide have seen an increase in students ingesting THC laced candy items.

This trend has led to some serious health complications recently nationwide.

Another troubling trend is the increase incidents involving vapes and pills that contain traces of fentanyl.

School officials are asking parents and guardians to have a frank discussion about the dangers of such activity.

They ask that you make sure your child is aware of the dangers of accepting candy even from their peers as packaging can be deceptive.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) offers tips for talking to kids about the dangers here.
