The Madison Central School Board has approved the second reading of a policy that is needed in order for the district to receive new opioid antagonists to have available in the district’s buildings.  The board approved the second reading of the policy during its meeting on Monday.  

Superintendent Joel Jorgenson said that the policy is required by the state before the new medication can be acquired.

Jorgenson said that they have never had to use the medication for an opioid overdose situation, and he hopes it stays that way.  

At the board’s October meeting, Jorgenson said that the Narcan is kept in locked cabinets in each of the schools and also with the School Resource Officer.  He said that the new medication the district will receive will replace what it has currently, which will be outdated shortly.  He said that the school nurse will do the necessary training for those who may need to administer the medication.
