School Year 2020-2021

Hand-Washing &

Hand hygiene is one of the components in the plan to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We will prioritize hand hygiene for all staff and students.

Staff and students will be required to wash their hands multiple times a day and will use hand sanitizer when hand-washing is unavailable — when changing classrooms, using
materials that may be shared, or if they take their mask off for a water or mask break.

The EWPS will have hand sanitizer in all high traffic areas, school and office entrances, classrooms that don’t have sinks in them, in the cafeterias, gyms, etc.

Please know that guidance regarding health and safety measures changes periodically and updates will be shared with families.


As of today, staff and families are welcome to make donations of Purell in accordance with the Green Cleaning Policy.
