Kids are now able to go to class as schools reopen this year. Many of them are excited to play and enjoy the outdoors. But since we are still under a pandemic, some states and districts are reinstating some guidelines. We still have to protect our kids from the disease, especially now that the Delta variant of COVID-19 attacks younger people.
One way to do that is to observe proper hygiene. There are simple measures we can do that will bring such an impact on our safety from infection. And we at the “Hinder them not” Montessori School would like to remind you of these steps:
Cleaning our hands with soap and clean water is one of the best ways to kill germs that can cause various illnesses. Daycare kids tend to stick their fingers inside their mouths. So instruct them to wash their hands after touching surfaces and before and after eating. This measure is not only to fight COVID-19 but also to eliminate many types of bacteria and viruses.
- Respiratory etiquette
Teach the young ones to cover their mouths and noses when coughing and sneezing. That way, they can prevent spreading respiratory fluids that might be carrying infections. Let them wear masks in crowded and enclosed places like parks or their Preschool in New Jersey, especially when they have coughs and colds.
Although many people already have a vaccine shot, it doesn’t mean we should put our guards down. Our Montessori School in Iselin, New Jersey, is one with the government and the parents in the fight against coronavirus. Let us work together for a safe 2021-2022 School Year.
