ACI, PTA to Host Learning Lab: Commit to Clean – How Hygiene is Critical to Healthy Schools

  • Free Webinar for Parents and Teachers on December 8, 2020 at Noon EST

The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) is partnering with the National Parent Teachers Association (PTA) to sponsor and moderate a December 8 panel discussion on the challenges schools and families are facing this school year when it comes to staying safe and healthy—and also cleaning, disinfecting and hand hygiene best practices, with actionable advice for school staff and parents.

During the National PTA Learning Lab, join experts both from the school health community and the cleaning product sector which makes the products we rely on to clean and disinfect, for a robust panel discussion. The conversation will cover maintaining proper hygiene despite pandemic fatigue and will be useful for parents no matter how their children are learning this year (virtual, in-school or both).

The Learning Lab, “Commit to Clean – How Hygiene is Critical to Healthy Schools,” will be held Tuesday, December 8, 2020 at noon Eastern. Register now for free.
