It’s back to school time which means students and parents are getting excited to start stocking up on school supplies and getting ready for the new school year! But back to school can also mean back to cold and flu season if you’re not prepared. Defend your district against the “school plague” by stocking up with enough school janitorial supplies to keep facilities clean and healthy all year long.
Proper cleaning not only makes schools look (and smell) better, but it also helps to protect the health of students, administrators and faculty. Each day, about 55 million students and 7 million staff attend the more than 130,000 public and private schools in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, students and teachers miss over 60 million school days each year due to the flu and colds alone.
Studies show that stopping the spread of illnesses in educational facilities is the most essential key in lowering absentee rates. The connection to attendance is clear; therefore, it is essential to keep your space clean and healthy.
According to the CDC, school districts should schedule routine surface cleaning through education, policy, and the provision of supplies. See How To Clean and Disinfect Schools To Help Slow the Spread of Flu for more information.
A clean environment should be top priority for schools, it can go a long way in upholding a school’s reputation by protecting student and faculty health. Remember to give extra attention to high-traffic areas in a school including the cafeteria, restrooms, classrooms, gyms and locker rooms as you welcome in the next cohort of students this fall.
