The New Hope – Solebury School District is committed to the safety and health of all community stakeholders on our campus. The District has obtained Naloxone (Narcan) for each school building as an emergency response medication in the event of an episode of respiratory distress/arrest secondary to a suspected drug overdose. Narcan would be administered under the guidelines established by the PA Department of Health, the prescriptive authority of the district physician and NHSD board policy (see below).
Naloxone hydrochloride (also known as naloxone, NARCAN® or EVZIO®) is a drug that can temporarily stop many of the life-threatening effects of overdoses from opioids. Naloxone can help restore breathing and reverse the sedation and unconsciousness that are common during an opioid overdose.
