Flu Prevention at HCS

HCS-flu

Here’s what HCS is doing to help prevent the spread of the flu:

  • Teachers are limiting the number of shareables in their classrooms (crayons, pencils, etc.).
  • Teachers are stressing to students the importance of handwashing, hand washing, hand washing.  Hand sanitizer DOES NOTtake the place of soap and water!
  • Teachers and School Custodians are wiping down non-porous services in their classrooms frequently, this would also include manipulatives such as keyboards, headphones, etc.
  • School Custodians are increasing the cleaning of frequently touched services and wiping down door handles, water fountains, and the bathroom and cafeteria areas.
