Practicing Good Health Habits - Tips from Discount School Supply

Hi. I’m Caron Pearce, Director of Human Resources for Discount School Supply. Part of my job is to provide support and information to our employees. Recently, I have been very focused on keeping our staff informed about the availability of regular flu vaccine this year and also about the new vaccine for the H1N1 Virus or Swine Flu. Our company traditionally provides flu shots for the staff each fall. This year we will provide the H1N1 vaccine as well when it becomes available. I hope that all of you are contacting your doctors, hospitals or local health authorities to get information about inoculation programs in your area.

We are also paying special attention to keeping hands and surfaces clean. We have made more disinfectant soap and wipes available to the staff in the office at Discount School Supply. That’s easy to do and it helps to keep good health habits top-of-mind.

In addition, we have made a list of all the products we offer that can be used to create a cleaner environment. Some of them promote more hand-washing by teachers and children. Some of them encourage better hygiene by using disposable covers or sheets. I include the list here for your convenience. You can find information about these items in the Discount School Supply catalog or online at Discount School Supply.

Of course, I must stress that none of these products will eliminate the risk of flu, but one useful step we can all take is to become very aware of keeping communal areas clean and to wash our hands frequently.
