Flagler County Public Schools is proud to share its latest innovation to keep students and staff healthy throughout the school year. The school district invested in the Clorox® Total 360®System as an additional layer of protection to help fight the spread of germs and create a healthier environment for all school students, visitors and staff. The system uses patented electrostatic technology to optimize cleaning and disinfecting, and help eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses and other germs that can contribute to absenteeism and outbreaks. School districts are often the hardest hit by outbreaks, and an estimated 60 million school days are lost each year due to cold and flu alone.To fight back, schools need to be confident that their cleaning products and protocols are up to the job.
The viruses and bacteria that often cause outbreaks, like the fast-spreading norovirus, cold and flu and methicillinresistant Staphylococcus
aureus (MRSA), can survive on surfaces from days to months. Knowing the impact absenteeism due to illness can have on students’ academic successes, Flagler County Schools make thorough daily cleaning and disinfecting surfaces an imperative step in protecting students and staff.
Flagler Schools implemented the Clorox® Total 360® System to enhance its standard cleaning and disinfecting regimens. The systems are a powerful tool in the fight against illnesses and infections that not only make cleaning and disinfecting more effective but also make the process more efficient, helping save time and reduce labor costs. The systems are currently being used across all nine schools in high-traffic areas like classrooms, gymnasiums and field houses.
“We have a goal to graduate 100 percent of our senior classes and knowing this, we need technology and solutions to help us keep our teachers and students in the classroom,” said Christopher Shudy, Director of Custodial Services for Flagler County Schools. “The Clorox® Total 360® System allows us to disinfect more surfaces in less time and with less labor, he added.”
