Wash your hands often and encourage your students to do so as well. Soap and water is always best but Purell and other hand sanitizers also work. Remember that when you sing Happy Birthday to yourself 2 times while washing, that correlates with the exact length of time recommended!
Try to minimize the use of shared items like pencils and crayons, etc. When it is necessary to used shared items, use a little Purell before and after use.
Remind everyone to cover their coughs and sneezes properly, throw used tissues in the trash and not on the floor and then wash hands.
If you are coughing into your elbow, wear a clean shirt every day.
If you are sick, stay home! We love you and your children, but we don’t love your germs!
