Potassium Iodide (KI) Administration

Because our community is located within the Emergency Planning Zone that surrounds the nuclear power plant in Monticello, Homeland Security Emergency Management has worked with our school district to prepare for emergency situations. One safety measure that has been implemented is the administration of KI (potassium iodide) in the event of a nuclear incident. If Public Health officials notify the district that it is appropriate to administer KI, the School Nurse and her designees would administer KI to those students who have consent to take KI. Below, you will find links to more information about KI and why it is taken in a nuclear event, as well as a consent form for your child.
