Cleaning & Disinfecting

Maintaining a clean, tidy, and safe campus

We have streamlined our classrooms to take advantage of our available physical distancing space. Our staff has removed some furniture items and hard to clean items from campus. Most surfaces and objects will just need normal routine cleaning with soap and water, and then will be disinfected with an EPA approved List N disinfectant.

High touch areas/items will be sanitized several times throughout the school day. These include:

  • tables and desks
  • counters
  • light switches
  • doorknobs
  • phones
  • keyboards, mice, and electronic devices
  • faucets and sinks
  • restroom toilets and locks
  • banisters and railings
  • gym equipment

We will also be using the EMist EPIX360 Handheld Electrostatic Sprayer to ensure quick, effective disinfection of surfaces throughout the school day as our students rotate between their classroom, playing outside, and using the restrooms, etc. 

Each of our classrooms and common areas has a blue sanitization cart available stocked with extra masks, Kleenex, hand soap and sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and paper towels to be used as the classroom teacher needs during the day. Each cart is also stocked with our cleaning expectations for quick reference.
