Teachers and School Nurses

You can make a critical difference in preventing the spread of infectious diseases at school and preventing student and teacher absenteeism.

The Healthy Schools, Healthy People program has resources tohelp you:

  • Engage your students;
  • Help you develop an action plan;
  • Get the school community involved; and
  • Help you overcome the most common in-school hand cleaning barriers.

Have you used the resources on this site to educate the students in your classroom? We want to hear about it! Let us know at SNAP@cleaninginstitute.org or post on social media using the hashtag #HealthySchoolsHealthyPeople.

Help keep your students in school, continuing to be safe, healthy and learning.
