Healthy Schools, Healthy People - It's a SNAP (School Network for
Absenteeism Prevention) is a grassroots, education-based effort to improve
health by making hand cleaning an integral part of the school day. SNAP is
designed to get the entire school community talking about clean hands by
providing tools for incorporating hand hygiene into multiple subject
areas and activities. And it's a great way to get recognition for your
school and share your success stories with others!
|Hand cleaning is simple but serious!
It's particularly important in schools, where lots of things
are shared - desks, books, pencils, food, and even germs.
Without proper hand cleaning, a single infection can quickly
spread among students, teachers, family, and friends.
SNAP is all about fostering simple, health-enhancing behaviors
the entire school community.
