Stop the Bleed kits were also provided for each bus in the district’s fleet.

Training took place over the last several weeks at each of the district’s buildings to familiarize staff with the tools and safety procedures. Participants were put through various skills stations in order to practice skills in a hands-on setting.

The district said since 2018, University Hospitals has donated more than 5,000 buckets and trained teachers in 100 school districts across Northeast Ohio.
