Arkansas School District Cracks Down on Cleaning

With many confirmed cases of the mumps as well as some cases of the flu in Northeast Arkansas, the Greene County Tech School District is stepping up efforts to sanitize their school buildings, according to an article on the Region 8 ABC website.

According to Superintendent Gene Weeks, they have purchased extra cases of Lysol products and antibiotic wipes to go to each building in the school district.

The district janitors are going above and beyond to prevent the spread of any bugs, Weeks said in the article.

“They are cleaning doorknobs, water fountains, light switches, printers,” said Weeks. “We request the students clear their desks at the end of the day so they can do another clean sweep of the classrooms.”
