   26         2. The school district and its employees and agents and the
   27  physician who provides the standing protocol for school naloxone
   28  are not liable for any injury arising from the use of the drug
   29  if it is administered by trained school personnel who follow the
   30  standing protocol and whose professional opinion is that the
   31  student is having an opioid overdose:
   32         a. Unless the trained school personnel’s action is willful
   33  and wanton;
   34         b. Notwithstanding that the parents or guardians of the
   35  student to whom the naloxone is administered have not been
   36  provided notice or have not signed a statement acknowledging
   37  that the school district is not liable; and
   38         c. Regardless of whether authorization has been given by
   39  the student’s parents or guardians or by the student’s
   40  physician, physician’s assistant, or advanced practice
   41  registered nurse.
