Tips for Staying Healthy

Healthy habits are proven to reduce illness.  Please review the following tips with your students:


Always Wash Your Hands:

  • After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • After using the bathroom.
  • Before and after eating. 
  • Before touching food.
  • After touching garbage/trash.
  • After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste.

How to Wash Your Hands:

  • Wet your hands with warm running water.
  • Lather with soap by rubbing hands together.  Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between fingers, and under your nails.  
  • Wash for at least 20 seconds.  That is about as long as it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.
  • Rinse hands well under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands with a paper towel. 
  • Use paper towel to turn off the tap/sink.  
  • Dispose of paper towel in garbage pail. 

Hand sanitizer gels should only be used when soap and water are not available.  Apply sanitizer gel to the palm of one hand, rub hands together, rub sanitizer gel over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.  Hand sanitizing gels do NOT remove food protein/allergens.

Respiratory/Cough Etiquette:

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.
  • Put your used tissues in a garbage can.
  • Stay home if you have a fever.

 Always keep hands away from your face.  Avoiding touching mouth, nose, or rubbing eyes with hands.

Eat Healthy:

  • Start the day with a healthy breakfast. It refuels the body and provides energy for the day.
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Choose water instead of sweet/sugary beverages.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet.  Choose more fruits and vegetables.

Sleep:

It is important to get enough sleep every day.  Set regular bed and wake-up times. Try to stick to your sleep schedule, within an hour or two, even on weekends.

Exercise:

  • Try to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
  • Limit TV, computer, and video game time – be active instead.
