Randolph Superintendent Jennifer Fano said in a letter posted on the district's website that the can was found Friday night near a student section of the bleachers at Randolph High School.

The students were pulled from the stands and their parents were called so they could be screened for alcohol. Students who refused the screening face suspension under school district policy.

Fano says investigators are reviewing video posted on social media of students drinking before the game.

Fano has apologized to the students who tested negative. She says the school board would pay for the cost of testing those students.
