ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — The parents of a Westgate Elementary School student say they’ve consulted their attorney after blood work on their child showed signs of fentanyl following a visit to the school nurse.

The family, who has chosen to remain anonymous to protect their privacy, say the child has suffered health problems because of the alleged misuse and believe other students in the school may be at risk.

“We are highly concerned for the health of our child and will not rest until we understand exactly what happened and see that the appropriate people are held accountable,” the family said in a statement.
