Emergency Medications

  • All campuses have an emergency supply of epinephrine that campus nurses or other trained school employees may administer in the event of an unexpected, undiagnosed anaphylactic reaction. 

    The District has specific procedures regarding the maintenance, administration, and disposal of epinephrine auto-injectors. The District works to provide sterile auto-injectors that are maintained in the campus nurse clinic, checked periodically, and disposed of properly after use. Staff are appropriately trained as to the right circumstances in which to administer an epinephrine auto-injector in the event of an anaphylactic reaction.

    The District authorizes school personnel who have been adequately trained to administer an opioid antagonist in accordance with law and this policy. Administration of an opioid antagonist shall only be permitted when an authorized and trained individual reasonably believes a person is experiencing an opioid-related overdose.
