Kindergarten Hand Washing Program

Clean Hands, Healthy Heart, Smart You

Mississippi Kindergarten Hand Washing Campaign

The Mississippi Kindergarten Hand Washing Campaign is a collaboration between the Mississippi State Department of Health, Mississippi Department of Education, Mississippi Hospital Association, Greater Chapter of the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and the Mississippi Nurses Foundation.

We are excited to work with school districts as an implementer of this great project. Annually more than 164 million school days are lost due to various illnesses. It is hypothesized that a great number of these days could be reduced if children merely washed their hands properly. To control student absenteeism due to communicable disease, proper hygiene practices will be promoted with a special emphasis on hand hygiene to kindergarten classrooms in Mississippi

There are four lessons for the Hand Washing Program:

1. Introduction to Germs;

2. Introduction to proper hand washing;

3. ABC’s of hand washing;

4.  How germs are spread.

All hand washing supplies are provided to the nurse for implementation of the hand wash program.

If you would like  information regarding the Hand Washing Program, please call (601) 898-0850.
