This back-to-school season, Johnathon Hines, author, and Georgia Pre-K Teacher of The Year, has partnered with Lysol to help spread the word about their HERE for Healthy Schools initiative, which promotes healthy habits in the classroom, so kids miss less school and can learn and grown and thrive. To celebrate the 5th year of the program, the brand will be supplying educators with Welcome Back Packs full of free educational resources like stickers, posters, and more. Also, a super fun healthy habits poster for educators to hang in their classes, reminding kids how to keep germs from going viral. It shows hotspots where germs are likely to hang out in the classroom and school grounds.

To curb germs in the classroom, teach basic hand washing for little ones early on. And the rule of thumb is to wash with soap and water for about 20 seconds. That is about the length of the "Happy Birthday" song. Always wash up before snack time or lunch.

It is also a must for teachers to use Lysol Disinfecting Wipes and Lysol Disinfectant Spray. It’s a secret weapon for a disinfected learning environment. Lysol Disinfecting Wipes can be used to clean and disinfect many hard surfaces around the classroom, like desks, chairs, and doorknobs. And Lysol Disinfectant Spray can be used to disinfect many of those hard and soft surfaces that can be germ hotspots. Used as directed, Lysol kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria on surfaces.

Educators can head online and sign up for free Welcome Back Packs at while supplies last. And you can check out all of Lysol’s free lesson plans and printouts that make it easy to teach kids about healthy habits to practice in the classroom and at home.
