MONTVILLE, NJ -- The Montville Township Board of Education passed an Opioid Antidote Policy at its March 7 meeting.

It allows for a school district certified school nurse, school athletic trainer, school administrator, or school staff who has been trained to administer the antidote, usually called narcan, to any student, school personnel, or other person believed to be experiencing an opioid overdose during school hours or during on-site school-sponsored activities.

Upon receiving a report of a possible opioid overdose during school hours or during an on-site school-sponsored activity, the principal, principal’s designee, or supervising staff member will immediately call 9-1-1.

The trained person will also be immediately called and begin care, monitor the victim and stay until emergency medical responders arrive on the scene.

The principal or designee will notify the parent as soon as practicable, and then the superintendent, according to the policy.

The policy “shall not, as a result of any acts or omissions, be subject to any criminal or civil liability for administering an opioid antidote in accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 24:6J-1 et seq.”

Rovtar confirmed at the Feb. 21 Board of Education meeting that all schools have narcan in-house.
