Nurse Robin
District Nurse
210-418-0224

The Nurse administers first aid, dispenses medication and performs medical procedures as ordered by a physician. The nurse does not diagnose illnesses, but assesses signs and symptoms and notifies the parent/guardian of findings when necessary.

Illness/Injury At School
If a child becomes ill or injured at school, they will be given first aid and the parent/guardian will be notified if necessary. Every effort will be made to contact the parent/guardian, before contacting alternative names listed on the emergency form. It is imperative that phone numbers (home, work, cell) be kept current and that the clinic be notified of changes.

Emergencies
If a child is seriously ill or injured at school and a parent/guardian or their designee cannot be reached, EMS will be called. NFPS does not assume any financial responsibility for, but will arrange for emergency care when deemed necessary.

Fentanyl Facts

What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. Just 2 milligrams of fentanyl, equal to 10 to 15 grains of table salt, is considered a lethal dose.

Illegally manufactured fentanyl is found in heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and in counterfeit pills. As a result, many people may not know they’re ingesting fentanyl, leading to an accidental poisoning.

Standard Response Protocol

What is Standard Response Protocol?

The Standard Response Protocol (SRP) is based on the response to any given situation not on individual scenarios. Like the Incident Command System (ICS), SRP demands a specific vocabulary but also allows for great flexibility. The premise is simple – these five specific actions that can be performed during an incident.

Common Language

The Standard Response Protocol (SRP) is based on an all-hazards approach as opposed to individual scenarios. Like the Incident Command System (IC), SRP utilizes clear common language while allowing flexibility in protocol.

The premise is simple—there are five specific actions that can be performed during an incident. When communicating these, the action is labeled with a “Term of Art” and is then followed by a “Directive.” Execution of the action is performed by active participants, including students, staff, teachers and first responders. The SRP is based on the following actions: Hold, Secure, Lockdown, Evacuate, and Shelter.
