*Health Tip:*

Let’s have a Happy Healthy Holiday season by starting off with celebrating
National Hand washing Awareness Week (12/3-12/9) to help make your school
prepared. Here are some simple steps to follow:

1. Everyone (staff and students) wash or sanitize your hands upon
entering the facility. You don’t want to bring in these infections.

2. Wash your hands when they are dirty and before eating.

3. Do not cough or sneeze into your hands.

4. Never touch your T zone. This is the eyes, nose, or mouth to prevent
infections from entering the human body.
