The Amherst, Pelham, and Amherst-Pelham Regional School Districts hereby agree to indemnify the bus contractor in those cases where a claim, suit or complaint is filed against the bus contractor where a bus driver, employed by the bus contractor, has administered an EpiPen on a student traveling on the bus to or from school or school-sponsored functions. This indemnification will be limited to those cases where the bus driver has been trained by staff of the District to administer the EpiPen, has administered the EpiPen in conformity with that training and in good faith, and has administered the EpiPen only in those cases where the student has been identified by the District as a student who may require the administration of an EpiPen in order to prevent a severe allergic reaction.
