Hygiene & Cleaning


Hand washing or hand sanitizing will be expanded from our daily routines of the past. We have installed hand sanitizing stations in each classroom and high traffic areas. Staff and students will be hand washing or sanitizing at the following times during the day:

  • Upon arrival
  • Prior to eating
  • After using the bathroom
  • After coming inside from outdoor activities
  • After using any of the communal classroom supplies
  • After sneezing or using a tissue


Additional increased cleaning procedures have been instituted both during the day and after the program has ended for the evening.

  • Throughout the day, high-touch surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected at various times
  • In between morning and afternoon classes, Hillside will sanitize all high-touch surfaces, classrooms, and bathrooms
  • All shared materials and equipment will be cleaned and disinfected after each class
  • At the end of the day, a janitorial team will thoroughly clean the entire school with extra focus on high touch areas
