Healthy Schools, Healthy People is a joint initiative between the American Cleaning Institute (ACI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) dedicated to supporting school systems nationwide with tools to help reinforce hand hygiene and cleaning practices to prevent the spread of infectious disease and reduce related absenteeism.
Our toolkit offers resources for school administrators and educators to help communicate the importance of cleaning, disinfecting and hand hygiene for a healthy and successful academic year.
Kids can join the fun with games and resources that help show why clean hands are important and how to set healthy hand hygiene habits!
