Cold and Flu Season is Coming…
We all know that it's important to be at school on time every day, but eventually children will get sick. One way to help lessen the spread of germs is to do the simple act of washing our hands. Children may not always listen when you tell them to wash their hands before eating, but it's a message worth repeating. Hand washing is by far the best way to prevent germs from spreading and to keep your kids from getting sick.
No new technology, drug or vaccine is capable of preventing more infections than the simple act of washing one's hands, according to doctors. Washing hands is a major public health intervention to prevent disease -- it's cheap, it's easy, and it works.
To reinforce the habit, practice with your children at home. Remember to tell them to sing the ABC song or another short song two times to have germ-free hands!
