Safety and Student Health

Key features of the SDPC comprehensive cleaning program:

  • Clear protocol for routine cleaning, sanitizing, and targeted disinfecting, including steps to take in the event of an infectious disease outbreak including the usage of EPA registered disinfectants and sanitizers.
  • Cleaning equipment designed to reduce the amount of chemicals required. These help prevent injuries, control cross-contamination, and effectively capture dirt, dust, microbes (germs), etc. Examples include: walk-off mats, high-efficiency particulate absorbing (HEPA) vacuum cleaners, microfiber cloths and mops, and time, energy-saving floor care machines and electrostatic sprayers for disinfecting.
  • Training programs for school staff on cleaning, sanitizing, and targeted disinfecting products and procedures, as well as hazard communications and blood borne pathogens training.
  • Daily disinfecting as usual on high traffic and contact areas such as door handles, light switches, and bathrooms.
  • Disinfect all surfaces, every room, offices etc. throughout facilities using our Electrostatic Sprayer on a frequency as directed by the Coordinator of Custodial Services.
  • Distribution of liquid hand sanitizer to each school location for distribution in appropriate locations along with installation of foam hand sanitizer dispensers in each classroom throughout the district.
  • Usage of HDQL Disinfectant, TB-CIDE QUAT Disinfectant, and Vital-Oxide for everyday disinfecting of surfaces.
