Naloxone resources available for school districts

Members of Boulder County’s Substance Use Advisory Group in collaboration with the Consortium and CDPHE have developed a new resource, the Naloxone in Schools Toolkit. This useful toolkit is designed to help school districts prepare to deploy nasal Narcan in the event of an opioid overdose. The toolkit, which is online, includes legislation validating that possessing Narcan in the school setting is both legal and encouraged; sample letters of support that can be edited as needed; position statements from the National Association of School Nurses and the National Association of School Personnel and Administrators; and order forms for Narcan from the pharmaceutical manufacturer, Emergent BioSolutions.

The full online toolkit can be accessed here or via the Consortium’s Harm Reduction Work Group webpage. For more information about the toolkit, contact ers@cuanschutz.edu.
