Return Health Disinfecting Materials

SCUSD Disinfecting Materials

Overview

Due to the unprecedented nature of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the awareness surrounding it, the Sacramento City Unified School District understands the desire to protect students and ourselves from possible infection. 

Some items an individual may normally use at home are not allowed for use in schools due to State and Federal policies in place for student health and safety, unless properly trained by the California Department of Pesticide Regulations. 

Aerosol spray containers are not allowed on school property for safety reasons. 

While the district is making every effort to ensure that supplies are replenished at our school sites, the following is a list of items recommended for individual procurement and use: 

Hand Sanitizer 

It is recommended that hand sanitizer be at least 60%-65% alcohol based in order to kill the virus and any other bacteria. 

Disinfecting Wipes 

Disinfecting wipes are effective and allowable, but it is important to read and follow all instructions. If the product is not allowed to dwell on the surface long enough (typically 5 minutes) it will not kill all virus or bacteria. Also the wipe is only effective for use in a small area. For example, a large table or multiple desks would require more than one wipe. 

It is critical that individuals read and follow the directions for any cleaning product every time before use.
