Why are the hand dryers and drinking fountains disabled?
Hand dryers have been disabled to minimize germs being blown into the air. Paper towels have been stocked in all district restrooms. Drinking fountains have been closed to limit shared items touched by a number of individuals. Individuals are encouraged to use reusable water bottles throughout the day.
What type of hand soap and hand sanitizer is being made available?
All students and staff must wash hands frequently. Soap products marketed as “antimicrobial” are not necessary or recommended. If soap and water are not available use district-approved greater than 60% ethyl alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Our district will provide hand washing and sanitizing stations, as outlined in the Return to Health Plan.
