Superintendent Brad Hunt announced in April that the Coppell ISD School Health Advisory Council has partnered with district staff in “collaborating, giving feedback and approving [the] district plan for moving forward with specific drug awareness opportunities for learners”—specifically addressing the outbreak of fentanyl in schools.

Students at the middle and high school levels will watch a video about fentanyl. Students and parents will also be receiving general information about it, Hunt said.

“This is a heavy topic and one that needs all of us working together to help address,” Hunt said. “In the following months, you can expect more information from CISD on fentanyl and other dangerous drug trends.”
