A preschooler brought a tequila drink to school and shared it with four other classmates last week, school officials told parents.
The case took place in Michigan, United States, according to information from the website Telemundo Chicago.
A spokesperson for the school described the drink as “a single-serve pre-mixed alcoholic beverage that was marketed as adult lemonade.”
Alexis Smith, one of the mothers of a girl who received the drink, said she was surprised when the school called her to say her daughter had been drinking alcohol.
Smith said the school was unable to give him an answer at this time. He also said that his daughter will not be returning to this school out of concern.

Also according to the information, the unit detailed that none of the children needed medical attention, but that the school team had consulted medical professionals preventively.
