(KSL News) A warning is sent home to parents after a second grader is poked by a needle.

A Weber School District spokesman says the girl found the needle in a flowerbed at a bus stop. She brought the needle with her to school and was poked while playing with it.

The eight-year-old is being tested for HIV and hepatitis, and taking medicine. Police say the tests will continue for about a year.
