PREVIEW: South Dakota Schools And Narcan

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The next frontier in the battle against illegal opioids could be in our schools.

School districts across the country are looking at stocking the antidote Narcan in the nurse's office in case a student overdoses.

School resource officers already carry Narcan with them in Sioux Falls schools.  

"If we have a student that is having a medical issue, we want to make sure that we can provide them the care that they need," School Resource Officer Todd Runyan said. 

The push to equip South Dakota schools with Narcan will likely make its way into the state legislature next year. Hear why one Sioux Falls lawmaker wants all students to have access to the antidote, in Tuesday's Eye On KELOLAND, at 10.
