DIXON – Two Reagan Middle School students are accused of being in possession of drug paraphernalia on school grounds.

According to Dixon Police Lt. Clay Whelan, at about 7:30 Wednesday morning, the teacher monitoring the school’s parking lot became aware of some “suspicious activity” and alerted school administration.

Police were called, and upon completing a search, two 13-year-old boys were found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia.

Whelan said the boys’ parents were called, and that charges are pending.

Dixon Superintendent Michael Juenger said past practice has been to suspend a student from school for 10 days with the possibility of expulsion for a first offense. 

“If the parent agrees to drug counseling for their child at their expense, if there is an expense, the expulsion recommendation is dropped,” Juenger said. “The above information is based upon a student having no significant past disciplinary history.”
