Staying Healthy After Hurricane Maria

My students need to stay healthy and germ-free this flu season after having been through Hurricane Maria!

My Students

I am the health and wellness specialist at a kindergarten through 5th-grade elementary school. The students at this school do not let Title 1 status define who they are as a learner. Many have struggled financially, emotionally, and physically and about 95% of the students are on free or reduced lunch, but that known statistic doesn't stop them from being eager to learn each and every day. Their families have instilled a sense of responsibility and respect and it truly shows in their character.

At the beginning of the school year, Hurricane Irma struck and left our community in shambles, and now we have started welcoming students who were displaced by Hurricane Maria.

We are in crucial need of basic health and wellness materials to keep the students healthy and ready to learn each and every day.

My Project

This project contains all the elements needed at school to fight our battle against the flu and all its germs and keeping students healthy.

The materials in this project will allow us to keep our students, including those who have come from Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, germ-free by keeping our hands and all the materials we come in contact with free of germs too.

All of the materials in this project have been listed as the safest for use in classrooms.

The cleaning wipes will allow us to wipe down our tables and desks everyday. Over 100 students enter and exit my room during the day, so that could be a lot of germs.

Band aides are essential to keeping open wounds covered. Gloves are the #1 safety procedure and there's nothing better than a lollipop after seeing the nurse.

Please help us get these basic health and wellness materials. Thank you.
