SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Ten students at a San Francisco middle school were taken by ambulance to area hospitals on Tuesday for treatment of exposure to an unknown substance , possibly an illicit drug, that some appeared to have ingested, emergency and school officials said.

Ethan Baker, a representative for the city Emergency Management Department, said the substance in question was possibly an illicit drug.

The mishap unfolded at about 1:20 p.m. local time when a student came to the school office "reporting an illness after having ingested some kind of substance," the school district statement said.

Additional students who had consumed the substance soon came forward to complain they, too, were feeling unwell, "and medical providers at the scene were immediately notified," the statement said, adding that 10 youngsters in all were treated.

The school alerted parents and advised them to seek medical help if their children experienced such symptoms as nausea, vomiting, unusual behavior "or an altered level of consciousness," the school district said.

Students throughout the school were also notified of the incident and assured "they will not be in trouble if they come forward to seek medical help."

According to the James Lick website, the school serves about 650 students in grades six through eight. (Reporting by Heather Somerville and Jim Christie in San Francisco; Writing and additional reporting by Steve Gorman in Los Angeles; Editing by Grant McCool and Simon Cameron-Moore)

Arizona's Trier suspended for trace amount of PED .

The NCAA agreed, the school said.Arizona is appealing the decision and hoping Trier will regain his eligibility soon.
