5610: Do Not Resuscitate/Do Not Intubate Requests

The District does not recognize and will not honor “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) or “Do Not Intubate” (DNI) requests from parents or guardians. If parents or guardians request district staff to withhold care from their child in the event of a life-threatening situation pursuant to a DNR or DNI request, district personnel will not comply.

When a student is in a life-threatening situation, district staff members are to render first-aid or other appropriate emergency care, and shall summon emergency medical personnel as soon as possible.
