Ten students from James Lick Middle School are being treated for "adverse reactions" after ingesting an unknown substance, according to a spokeswoman for San Francisco Unified School District.

At 2:49pm, the city's Department of Emergency Management advised the public to avoid the area near the school at Noe and 25th streets due to police activity.
