Welcome Back...Now wash up!

Garwood Public Schools opened back up for the 2009/2010 school year Thursday morning. And, with the start of school the Superintendent is telling parents what the district will be doing to combat H1N1 Swine Flu.

The Superintendent said in a letter, "our school community has been working with the Union County Health Department, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other school districts to prepare for the possible increase in the Novel H1N1 influenza (swine flu) that is anticipated this fall."

According to Garwood's Public School District its top priority is to keep the students and staff safe and healthy. The Superintendent said throughout the school year all classrooms and common areas will be cleaned on a daily basis with a disinfectant cleaner that's effective in killing H1N1 germs. Also, all classrooms, cafeterias, computer labs and bathrooms have been equipped with hand sanitizers.
The Superintendent went on to say, the CDC no longer recommends closing a school with confirmed cases of H1N1. Instead the CDC advises that classrooms and common areas be disinfected regularly.

Finally, parents are urged to promote good hygiene at home and talk to their kids about hand-washing.
