Back to School: Hand & Body Hygiene


With school bells looking to ring in just over a month and welcome students back into the classrooms, now more than ever we should be reminded just how important a role hygiene can play. As we saw with the viral spread of COVID-19 over the last year and a half, proper hand and body care are imperative in order to keep yourselves and each other healthy. Please continue reading below to see a list of benefits schools can experience from better hygiene practices as well as our product recommendations that we feel will keep you and yours safe this school year!

  • Reduced Absenteeism: When students have access to soap in numerous convenient areas, the amount of germs and bacteria that can be spread is dramatically reduced. Consequentially, this leads to fewer sick days, which results in higher grades, better academic performance, and higher graduation rates.

  • Improved Learning Environment: Continuing off the first point, when teachers are healthy, they are able to consistently stick to their curriculum and focus solely on their academic environment. On the flip side, when students are healthy and hygienic they are more likely to achieve higher grades, miss less school, and not become a detriment to others by getting their classmates sick. When the faculty and students are all healthy, everyone can focus on what’s really important, education.

  • Teaching Quality Improves: Teachers are on the front lines interacting with numerous students on a daily basis. When one sick student infects the teacher, this results in that instructor battling that sickness and either having to take time off which requires enlisting a substitute teacher, or have them teach a class in a distracted, weakened state. Instead of being able to focus on the quality of education in the classroom, they become focused on their general health, which takes away from the overall quality of teaching. By improving student hygiene, we can ensure our teachers are teaching to the best of their abilities.

  • More School Funding: Nationwide studies have shown that schools with cleaning programs in place as well as decreased absentees can allocate their funds on more important initiatives that focus on education. When schools utilize a systematic cleaning regimen, it can reduce custodial costs dramatically.

Teachers, administrators, and parents can relate to the fact that they get sick more frequently because of how easily children spread germs, bacteria, and viruses that are unknowingly present in the classroom and playground. With a proper hygiene strategy in place, schools and their students can reap in the benefits of a cleaner environment in more ways than one as you read previously. With that being said, Theochem Laboratories specializes in quality products that are both effective and economical for any cleaning program out there.
