Clean Hands Toolkit for

Teachers and administrators know that colds and flu spread rapidly within schools, causing many children to miss school days.  A dedicated program for hand washing can reduce absenteeism, making for a smoother school year.  Education and awareness on hand washing can help increase the number of students who wash their hands. 

Did you know:

  • In one study, only 58% of female and 48% of male middle and high school students washed their hands after using the bathroom.

  • Of those who washed their hands, only 33% of the females and 8% of the males used soap!

  • Hand washing benefits very young children as well - in Minnesota, a daycare resulted in 50% fewer illnesses by helping the kids wash their hands every morning when they arrived.
