Lysol’s HERE program to help Canadian school’s reopen safely
Lysol stated that since the program's initial launch in 2019, more than one-third of all Canadian elementary schools have participated in the program and received the Welcome Back Packs.
TORONTO— Reckitt, the maker of Lysol, developed the HERE for Healthy Schools Program to help create safe classroom environments, teach children healthy habits, and ultimately reduce student absenteeism due to illnesses.
The program provides K-2 elementary school teachers across Canada with a “Welcome Back Pack” that contains Lysol disinfecting wipes and other helpful resources for the classroom, including interactive lesson plans, healthy habits posters and stickers.
Lysol stated that since the program’s initial launch in 2019, more than one-third of all Canadian elementary schools have participated in the program and received the Welcome Back Packs.
According to a statement from Lysol, last year the program received 97 per cent recommendation scores from participating teachers across Canada, who were surveyed by a third party. This year’s program is packed with even more healthy habits resources, interactive learning materials, and Lysol disinfecting wipes to help school communities make a safe return to in-person learning after a year of hybrid education.
“We understand that despite the excitement for returning to in-person learning, concern for germs remains top of mind for parents and teachers,” said Corrie Mueller, Vice President of Marketing at Reckitt the maker of Lysol products, in a company statement.
“We hope the HERE program can contribute to our school community by easing some of the worries around germs and helping kids stay in school safe and healthy for the rest of the school year.”
