Bancroft-Rosalie Community School is excited to be the recipient of a new AED (Automated External Defibrillator).
The new AED will be located on the elementary side of the school. There is currently an AED located in the commons area near the gymnasiums.
Members of the Cardiac Emergency Response Team are Dr. Jon Cerny, Mr. Sjuts, Mr. Meyer, Mr. Peters, Ms. Raasch and Mrs. Munderloh.
Should there be any cardiac emergency at school, the CER Team is ready to react in a moment's notice.
The AED has been provided by the Parent Heart Watch program. The CER Team has created and implemented a cardiac emergency response plan, which was approved in January.
School‐Based Cardiac Emergency Response Plan
Information for Parents
The safety of your children while they are in our care is paramount to us. The American Heart Association, in collaboration with more than 10 national health and safety organizations* just released a brand‐new Cardiac Emergency Response Plan for schools.
We are pleased to announce that our school is among the first in the nation to implement this lifesaving plan.
Could a cardiac emergency really happen at our school?
Unfortunately, yes, it could. In 2013, the American Heart Association reported 9,500 cases of out‐of‐ hospital cardiac arrest in youth.
Prompt response saves lives.
Across the United States, even the best emergency medical services (EMS) systems can’t reach cardiac arrest victims for 3 to 5 minutes. Therefore, the actions taken by bystanders during the first few minutes of a cardiac emergency are critical. Prompt action can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.
What is a Cardiac Emergency Response Plan? A Cardiac Emergency Response Plan is a written document that establishes specific steps to take during a cardiac emergency in a school setting.
Our staff will be involved in these essential elements: establishing an effective communication system, training anticipated responders in CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) use, obtaining access to an AED for early defibrillation, acquiring the necessary emergency equipment, coordinating and integrating on‐site responder and AED programs with the local EMS system and practicing and reviewing the response plan.†
Why is it important?
A carefully orchestrated response to cardiac emergencies will reduce death and disability in school settings like ours and help ensure that chaos does not lead to an improper or inadequate response. Preparation is essential.
Parents, we need your help!
As teams of our school staff learn CPR, we encourage all parents to learn CPR through one of these options:
1. Take 60 seconds to watch the free Hands‐Only CPR video at www.heart.org/handsonlycpr.
2. Locate and attend a classroom‐based CPR and AED course. Visit www.heart.org/cpr and click the red “Find a Course” button.

Last week, schools across the nation celebrated “National School Breakfast Week.”
National School Breakfast was launched in 1989.
The USDA School Breakfast Program currently serves 14 million students every day.
Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math, score higher on standardized tests, have better concentration and memory, are more alert and maintain a healthier weight than those who don’t.
A healthy breakfast to start the day is one way to ensure students are getting the best education they can.
At B-R, students are offered many choices on a daily basis from a hot breakfast to a grab-and-go option, including many choices of cereals, fruits and juices.
