    REVERE, Massachusetts (WBZ) — A bag of fentanyl was found at Revere High School, according to an email obtained by the WBZ I-Team.

Parents were notified Wednesday that a baggie of an unknown substance was discovered on the floor of a classroom and tests determined it was fentanyl, a powerful and potentially deadly drug.

The email to parents said students don’t use the classroom where the baggie was found and there is no indication that any student consumed any of the drug.

A spokesperson for the district said the incident is under investigation with the help of Revere police.

Parents WBZ spoke to are concerned and are demanding to know more about how the drugs got into the school.

“How was it in a classroom that no one uses?” asked parent Danielle Day. “How did it get there? Why did someone have access to that classroom?”

A Revere substance use prevention group will speak to students in the coming weeks. Parents hope for other visible changes too.

“Narcotic sniffing dogs, during the school day. There needs to be better security,” Day said.

“I’m a nurse, it’s dangerous,” said parent Jeff Stevens. “So I know how dangerous it is. And I know somebody could have potentially died just coming into contact with it.”

The Revere Superintendent said they will be bringing in substance use prevention groups to speak with students. Drug-sniffing dogs will also be brought into the school.
