Washington County High School was put on a “soft lockdown” last Wednesday after a student reportedly inhaled a THC substance through a vaping device and became unresponsive.

During the lockdown, students were held in their classrooms for about 10 minutes.

A search for the device was conducted, Washington County Schools superintendent Robin Cochran said.

The lockdown also allowed EMS to enter the building without students in the hallways, she said.

“For safety reasons, we never want students moving when this occurs,” Cochran said.
