Tyler ISD reinforces healthy habits to combat illness

January 18, 2017


As the cold and flu season continues, Tyler ISD teachers and campuses are reminding students of the importance of practicing healthy habits during the school day and at home.


Such habits include covering a cough or sneeze with an elbow, avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth, and most importantly, proper hand-washing.


Students at Andy Woods Elementary School recently reviewed these habits through a school wide assembly that gave tips and tricks students can use to help them remember to wash their hands thoroughly and frequently.


Cynthia Baker from Tyler ISD health services says the easiest habit for staying healthy that can be enforced at school and at home is proper hand-washing.


“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention puts it best when they say ‘hand-washing is like a do-it-yourself vaccine. It's quick, it's simple, and it can keep us all from getting sick.’ Teachers have the influence to mold the habits of their students. When these habits include hand-washing we all stay healthier.”
