  • Increase access to hand sanitizer (2500 wall mounted hand sanitizer dispensers were installed throughout buildings)
  • Visual prompts – posters in the halls and at classroom doors
  • Education to staff and students (stay home if you are sick)

Cleaning and disinfecting measures
  • Victory Sprayer utilized in classrooms

Ventilation system improvements

  • Increase air exchange from 3-4 times per hour to 5-6 times per hour in each building.
