CDC Recommendations that will help us all stay Healthy
- Wash your hands frequently. Wash your hands with soap and water for over 20 seconds. Share with your younger students how to wash appropriately.
- When greeting someone, use a fist bump or elbow bump rather than a handshake or hug.
- Ask your students not to share personal items like drinks, food, etc.
- If you get sick or your student gets sick, stay home. If you have a fever, the CDC advises you call your doctor rather than making an office or hospital visit.
Recommendations for LRSD Staff
- Avoid the use of alcohol based sanitizers. Alcohol-based sanitizers have led to eye issues as our younger students typically are not used to this type of product.
- Avoid use of bleach in your classrooms. This is not a recommended product in schools at any time. Use of aerosol sanitizing sprays should also be avoided when children are around. Such sprays can aggravate asthma and cause other respiratory distress.
- Avoid use of hand wipes, as many students are allergic to these type of products. If they need a hand wipe, allow them to use the restroom to properly wash their hands with liquid soap.
