Kids are taught to wash their hands before meals and before leaving the restroom, but does that mean the surfaces they touch at school are clean? The answer is almost always no. Just like restaurants tables and seats, the desks and chairs in most schools get wiped with the same dirty rag. Rarely will you find a custodian who disinfects all the surfaces students touch.

In fact, school germ and virus infestations have become such a problem that many are being forced to temporarily close for disinfection. So far this extreme solution has been required at schools in multiple states the last few years, including Louisiana (2019), Texas (2019), Tennessee (2018), Kansas (2018), Ohio (2018),and Michigan (2017).

Teach your children how to properly use disinfecting wipes for school and ensure they form a habit of using them regularly.

Protect Your Child From H1N1 at School 

Also known as the swine flu, H1N1 can linger on surfaces between 2 to 8 hours. Other viruses can last even longer. Teaching your children to develop a habit of disinfecting surfaces before they touch them, especially while at school, will drastically reduce their chances of getting sick.

Otherwise known as swine flu, H1N1 can linger on surfaces between 2 to 8 hours. It can be transmitted when someone sneezes or when an infected person touches an object. The symptoms are simlar to the regular seasonal flu, but it can cause more serious problems for some people, such as breathing problems, pneumonia and lung infections.

Teaching your children to develop a habit of disinfecting surfaces before they touch them, especially while at school, will drastically reduce their chances of getting sick.

It’s also a good idea to disinfect your child’s school supplies at home. Common items that should be cleaned at least once a month include plastic pencil cases, scissors, lunch boxes, smartphones, laptops and anything else that regularly travels to school with your child. During flu season, you’ll want to clean them more often.

In addition to a canister for home use, the SONO Disinfecting Wipes Family Pack includes travel-size pouches that fit perfectly in backpacks and purses. Each package has a resealable cover that’s easy to open and keeps the wipes fresh when they’re not being used.

School Safety Tip

Teach Your Kids How To Disinfect

The first step we recommend is to ask your kids what items and surfaces get touched the most. If you see any gaps in what they notice, such as light switches and handles, be sure to point those out. The next step is to remind them to carry SONO Disinfecting Wipes wherever they go. The travel packs are small and fit in backpacks really well, so that’s a good way to start.

It’s also a good idea to teach them to never presume a surface is germ-free when they’re away from home—especially ones that are touched frequently like the seats on a school bus.

Next, be sure they understand that SONO Disinfecting Wipes need four minutes to remove 99.9999% of germs and bacteria. Once they wipe a surface, they shouldn’t touch it until at least that much time has passed.

Student Lockers

The handles to student lockers are probably the most-touched surfaces in a school. It’s best to carry a wipe to use on them before and between classes.

  • Door and bathroom handles should also be disinfected.
  • In the cafeteria, be sure your child is aware of germs on salt and pepper shakers.
