The Relentless School Nurse: Back-To-School Essentials from Sandy Hook Promise

The most recent PSA from Sandy Hook Promise will tear a hole in your heart as you watch how the back to school supplies we have all bought for our children are now being used. This is not hype, this is what it feels like in many schools.  It feels like we are all preparing for the pending carnage that can begin at any time.

We are on high alert, especially school nurses. The conversations we are having now include Stop the Bleed and writing grants for tourniquets in every classroom.  There was a recent article in a Denver paper that teachers were given kitty litter and Sharpies in the back to school kits. The kitty litter was in case students needed to use the bathroom during an extended lockdown and the Sharpie was to write the time the tourniquet was applied if needed.

Survive the school year with these must-have back to school essentials.… **Please note that this PSA contains graphic content related to school shootings that may be upsetting to some viewers.
