Stop the Bleed Training
All Grades

Principal Bulletin Action Required - September 26, 2019

As part of our Safe Schools initiative, SCUSD was awarded grant funding from Kaiser Permanente to provide Stop the Bleed training and life-saving kits to every SCUSD school site.

The ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding in someone who is injured and effectively assist that person can save a life. Studies have shown that the help given by an immediate responder can often make the difference between life and death, even before medical professionals arrive. The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma is leading the effort to save lives by teaching individuals how to provide vital initial response to stop uncontrolled bleeding in emergency situations. The Bleeding Control Basics course gives participants the necessary tools to become an empowered initial responder.

To fulfill our training requirement, all school site administrators (Principals, Assistant Principals, etc.) are required to attend one of the training sessions below.

  • Tuesday, September 17, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. (Tennessee Conference Room)
  • Wednesday, September 18, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. (Tennessee Conference Room)
  • Thursday, September 26, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. (South Carolina Conference Room)
