Virginia School District weighs action on opioids

    An Illinois law now allows schools to stock and administer naloxone, an antidote for overdoses of opiates such as heroin and prescription pain killers such as codeine and Oxycontin.
    Though no final action was taken at Monday evening’s Virginia Board of Education session, Superintendent Brent O’Daniell is researching the law. Board action may be taken as soon as the Nov. 21 meeting.
