If you've ever been around eight year olds, you know that although they are wonderful, they are covered in germs!!! We have a big problem with attendance at our school. Much of it is due to illness, both in teachers and students. We don't have Kleenex unless I buy it, and the students are always sneezing and coughing. There is usually no soap in the bathroom and often no time to wash hands before lunch even if there was soap. As a result, we always seem to have some sort of epidemic in the classroom! I'm asking for some tissues, Purell hand sanitizing gel, Lysol spray and disinfectant wipes to clean surfaces to try to stop this epidemic! I am also asking for basic cleaning supplies - broom and mop - because the janitors have had their hours and staff cut and don't have time to clean the floors. Thank you!!
