  • Students and staff are encouraged to wash their hands as follows:  

    • Upon entering the building and classrooms  
    • After sharing objects or surfaces  
    • Before and after snacks and meals  
    • After using the bathroom  
    • After helping a student with toileting  
    • After sneezing, wiping, or blowing nose or coughing into hands  
    • Anytime hands are visibly soiled 

    At times when hand washing is not available, students and staff may use a hand sanitizer. In order for the sanitizer to be effective it must contain a minimum of 60% ethanol or 70% isopropyl alcohol. Hand sanitizing dispensers will be located at the entrance of large group gathering areas such as cafeterias and gymnasiums as well as throughout the buildings.
