    I can’t even begin to describe how many of my students are currently sick with colds.  Along with the change of seasons and the spread of germs, most of them are really feeling miserable.  It’s the perfect opportunity to teach them how important it is to wash their hands regularly and to cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze.  Believe it or not, millions of school days are missed each year due to student absences that are caused by illnesses like the common cold or the flu.

    Lysol® has partnered with Madison Square Boys and Girls Club of America in New York City to teach students about the presence of millions of germs that invade their classrooms every single day!  The best part is that fourth-graders will be able to quantify these germs through interactive science experiments.  They are learning how germs can flourish on desks, light switches, doorknobs, and school supplies and how they can protect their classroom from these pesky germs.  Instilling these healthy and sanitary habits can go a long way in impacting student absence rates so that they don’t miss out on valuable instructional time.

    I, personally keep my own classroom supplied with Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes and Lysol® Disinfectant Spray, which kill 99.9% of germs on commonly touched surfaces.  After every class, and at the end of every day, I make sure to use them on student desks and the doorknob to the classroom because I know that those are high traffic areas and that they are prone to helping support the spread of germs and illness.  It’s very important to me as an educator to support my students in attending school every day so they can benefit from every moment of instruction.

    Students who participate in the Lysol® Back To School Science Fair will reveal their germ findings and healthy solutions in New York City. Judges, including actress and Lysol spokesperson, Ali Larter, microbiologist Joe Rubino and National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners representative Dr. Mary Beth Koslap-Petraco will review and award the projects.  Using the Scientific Method is a great way to educate students about hygienic habits including regular handwashing, as well as proper cough and sneeze etiquette.  Adults and educators can also help to prevent the spread of these illness-causing germs through disinfecting germ-attracting surfaces in the classroom.

    As an educator, I love how committed Lysol® is to educating families and teachers about healthy living limiting the spread of germs.  It’s a great way to support learning and to help keep everyone in our community healthy.

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of the ways that you help to stop the spread of germs in your home and reduce the number of sick days your child takes off from school?
