CHESTERFIELD, NJ – As a sign of a growing community, Chesterfield Township Elementary School will store Narcan (Naloxone) in the nurse’s office. At the November 14th School Board Meeting, the Board voted unanimously, with Brown and Jablonski absent, to allow the life-saving medicine to be made available to the two Elementary School nurses.

School Superintendent Scott Heino tells WBNC News that he’s acting on information from the school physician and that the cost of any medicine would come out of the health office budget. Board Member Christina Hoggan made reference to people out in the world that could potentially make fake candy and give it to kids, while it may be laced with a drug of some kind.

Chesterfield Police tell us that Narcan has been used 3 times by our Police Department in the year 2018 “that resulted in 3 saves.”
