Cleaning and Disinfection

Take a Wipe at COVID
During the Return to Campus Orientation each staff member will be introduced to and apply practices  with the current process used for cleaning areas in their associated spaces. The CDC recommends that surfaces be cleaned with a soap and water solution daily. Staff will be asked to clean their desk and table spaces with the GREEN cleaning solution and towels at the end of the day. Facilities staff will throughout the day clean high touch public spaces throughout the Campuses. If needed Facilities staff will disinfect an area associated with any COVID event. It is illegal and not recommended that staff bring personal products into the facility. Every product is required to meet school use and be entered into the MSDS book. Please ask the building Administration if a special product is required for your program or space.

The Best Defense is a Good Scrub
Each of the main entrances into each building have had no touch foaming hand sanitizer dispensers installed. Please encourage the use of these and proactive hand washing.

Cleaning Totes
There is a cleaning tote in each room on both campuses. Each tote is stocked with all the supplies and PPE staff will need for the day. Totes will be restocked as needed.
