In an effort to prevent the spread of germs, please remind your children of the importance of good hygiene, including proper hand washing techniques. Students will be reminded throughout the school day to wash their hands. Hand sanitizer has been ordered and, when available, will be placed throughout each building for students and staff to use between hand washings.
The district has many cleaning products and supplies on hand to be used to disinfect the buildings and buses. Additional products and supplies have been ordered in a proactive approach to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
