8 Tips to Keep Kids Germ-Free at School

This entry was posted in News on by .

Kids love to be close and share everything, even germs. Here are some quick tips to help students reduce the spread of germs at school. 

  1. Wash your Hands– Wash hands in warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds. Sing the alphabet song once to help with timing.
  2. Don’t Share– Send extra supplies so students can use their own items rather than community items. 
  3. Cover Sneezes and Coughs– Sneeze into the crook of the elbow or into a tissue, not into hands. If a student accidentally sneezes into their hands, remind them to wash their hands right away.
  4. Hands off Your Face– Teach students to keep hands away from their face, out of their nose and out of their mouths. If they accidentally touch these things, remind them to wash their hands right away. 
  5. Skip the Water Fountain– Send a water bottle with students each day so they can avoid the water fountain. If they need to use the water fountain, teach students how to drink without touching their mouth to the spigot.
  6. Eat Fruits and Veggies– A healthy diet can help boost the immune system.
  7. Get Enough Sleep- Sleep helps build the immune system. Follow these guidelines: 
    • Ages 10-17: 8.5 to 9.5 hours per night 
    • Ages 5-10: 10 to 11 hours per night 
    • Ages 3-5: 11 to 13 hours per night
  8. Stay Home From School when Sick– If a student is sick, they need to stay home until they are well again to avoid spreading illness to others.
