School board gives tentative approval to overdose drug

The Middletown Area School Board gave tentative approval on Monday, April 25 to a policy that would allow nurses and other trained district employees to give naloxone to a student, staff member or visitor overdosing from heroin or another type of opioid on school grounds.

The board unanimously approved the policy at a preliminary reading. The policy is expected to come back to the board for final approval in June.

Naloxone, also known by the brand name Narcan, is a drug known to reverse the effects of a heroin overdose. It is carried by emergency medical responders and by most police departments in Dauphin County.

Middletown would be the first school district in the county to make the drug available in schools, according to Cheryl Dondero, director of Dauphin County Drug and Alcohol Services.
