School Cleaning and Disinfecting
Cleaning and disinfecting our schools is top priority for the Department during this time of uncertainty. We, at the Facilities Department have taken a proactive approach to ensure our schools are cleaned and disinfected for our students, staff and community when the day comes when we can all return to school in some form or fashion. We realize our lives have changed forever and how we work and serve each school within our District has changed as well.
What are we doing? The good news is the cleaning and disinfecting products we currently use have proven to be effective and meet the specific guidelines for disinfectants that are effective against the virus and requirements for the EPA’s emerging pathogens program. Custodians are properly suited and equipped with proper cleaning supplies and materials to first:
Wipe down every touch surface within every classroom, gym, cafeteria, restroom, office space, library with a multi-purpose cleaner. Every touch surface is then sprayed with a disinfectant and allowed to sit for approximately 5 minutes allowing time for the disinfectant to do its job. Every touch surface is then sprayed again with the same disinfectant then wiped down with a micro-fiber cloth. The process is repeated. We will follow CDC guidelines for the frequency of disinfecting and ensure our processes are consistent with their recommendations.
6 Rules for School Safety
Back-to-school doesn't have to mean back-to-worrying. Though safety inside your child's school is ultimately the responsibility of the principal and school staff, parents can take a few basic steps to ensure a safe school experience, too. These are recommended by the National Association of Elementary School Principals:
- Learn the school's emergency procedures
- Know travel routes to and from school
- Know and follow school security and safety measures
- Talk with your child about safety
- Inform school staff about health and emotional concerns
- Get involved.
