I had a great conversation with an elementary school administrator this morning that made me think about school cleanliness in a way I had never before thought about it. As we were talking about the upcoming STAAR testing and the distractions that can take students away from those crucial school days, the topic of food allergies came up.
As it turns out, her son has a peanut allergy. Since I was there to talk about renting the school facility for a weekend activity, this news prompted me to ask, “Do we need to avoid bringing peanuts or other food items on campus?”
If you are a school administrator of school campus facilitator, this is a concern that is worth taking seriously. Food allergies and sensitivities are only one of many reasons that your school needs to be seriously clean. After flu season has drawn to a close, it’s easy to get lax about this topic, but my conversation this morning was an unexpected reminder that school cleanliness is just as important the rest of the year as it is during cold and flu season.
