Keeping a school clean is important to school administrators, staff, students, and their families. Why? Because each of them is affected if there are germs lingering or areas are cluttered and disorganized. Read on to see how each area can affect the environment of the individuals listed above.
School administrators want to keep all their students and staff safe. Testing scores can decrease if students and staff are distracted during the learning process. These individuals expect a safe and healthy environment to spend their days teaching or learning, but when there is chaos caused by disorganization, faulty buildings, or sickness, then it is hard to concentrate or fulfill their duties to the best they can.
Students Can Fall Behind
If students miss school because of illness, they can also fall behind in their lessons. If a child is sick because of germs they catch from another child, they can miss days or weeks of what is being taught. Then to play catch up on top of current learning can feel overwhelmed. For some, this sense of not getting ahead can lead to further problems down the line.
Outbreaks or Illness
If the school buildings are not disinfected on a regular basis, then lingering germs can create sickness among one or many individuals in the building. An outbreak of an illness like the flu or COVID causes distractions as individuals become sick and are distracting, or are later missed from school. This can cause a disruption in learning, and depending on the number of students out, the teacher may need to reteach the information. And when teachers are out, students do not receive the same education from substitute teachers.
Employee Sick Days
By keeping a school disinfected, you can reduce the number of sick days needed by employees for health reasons. To see how the flu could be costing you millions, read more here.
Overall, providing a healthy environment can create a healthy well-being for all in the building. It helps maintain focus and when healthy, students and teachers can perform their tasks at full strength. And not mentioned previously, families of the students and staff will appreciate their loved ones being safe when away from them, day after day.
