YCJUSD Families and Team,

This morning the Yucaipa Fire Department responded to a call regarding a student on campus at Yucaipa High School.  Upon arrival, the Yucaipa Fire Department administered naloxone (Narcan) as a precaution.  We can’t share more details at this time however, we want to recognize the Yucaipa Fire Department and the Thunderbird students and staff who acted without hesitation to help a fellow Thunderbird in need.  

While this is not a confirmed overdose, please use this as a teachable moment for our children and our community.  The dangers of drug use are very real and have the potential to leave a devastating impact on the ones we love.  It is a necessity that we address these dangers with our children to help mitigate the unintended consequences of drug abuse.  Please also use this to remind students not to accept medications of any kind from anyone other than a medical provider.     

If there is anything we can do to help you and your children navigate this, please contact your school’s front office or the District Office, and don’t hesitate to use the resources available to you 24/7 on our website ( like STOPit and Care Solace for support.


The Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District
