Flu season is upon us and I hope that you all are well. We are trying to teach the children proper hand washing procedures. We have talked to some students who don't wash their hands in public restrooms or when they use the restroom at home. We also have some students who don't have soap in their bathrooms at home. We know that hand washing can be messy, but it is the best flu preventive we have! Please work with your children to turn on the faucet, wet their hands, get one squirt of soap, make bubbles (before they put their hands back under the running water,) lather the fronts and backs of both hands while singing the ABC song, rinse their hands, get a paper towel, dry hands and use the towel to turn off the water. Of course, you set the best example by using the proper hand washing procedure yourself! Thank you for partnering with us to stay healthy this year.
