Valdosta - Classroom parties filled with homemade sweets and goodies may soon be a thing of the past.

Two 13-year-old Cobb county students were arrested Tuesday for bringing a cake to class that was laced with bleach and made 12 students sick. Now many schools are banning such sweets from the classroom.

The Lowndes County school system doesn't have a policy against bringing in homemade goods, but administrators say they'll be paying close attention to food brought into the school and they could ban it all together in the future. "Federal regulations require every school system to develop a wellness plan by 2006 and this is a possible area where we can address this issue in our wellness plan when we begin to develop it," said Jennifer Hattaway.

Last month, eight high school students near Atlanta got sick after eating parts of a large homemade cookie brought in by another student.
