Quick tips to remind your child

- Covering our coughs/sneezes *elbow is best, immediately use hand sanitizer or wash your hands
- Avoid touching our faces, eyes, masks
- Be kind to others
- NO SHARING foods, drinks, masks, pencils, lip gloss, chapstick….
- When removing masks, sanitize or wash hands and remove from the ear straps or string. Do no remove from the cloth part of the mask that touches the face.
- NO SHARING of masks EVER
- If they fall onto the floor, TELL SOMEONE, do not place back on your face. One can be provided until family can wash
- Parents: it may not be a bad idea to think of a way to keep the mask attached to your child with a clip, necklace, or the gator masks
- Have extra masks in case they get lost, stolen, thrown away or dirty during school
- Masks should be washed daily, that's why it is great to have more than 1 to rotate for cleaning
- Keep in a container, baggie, brown paper bag
- DO NOT STICK IN POCKET OR BOOKBAG
- Breaks will be needed, if you cannot wait for the scheduled break, talk with teacher/staff
- IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL BECAUSE OF WEARING THE MASK TELL SOMEONE (light headed, dizzy, nauseated, overheated)
