The first day of school can be exciting for you and your students! There are new friends to meet, new concepts to learn, and new adventures in the year ahead. But, heading back into a classroom can also mean new challenges. This year, help your children have a happy and healthy transition back to school with PURELL® Hand Sanitizer and Target.

Back to School

We have decided to join the PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer 30-Day Challenge. This means we will use PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer every day for the next 30 days. Easy enough, right?! You should wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds (teach kids to sing the ABC song to ensure they wash long enough) and if soap and water is not available, use PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer. Hand hygiene is important in helping to prevent the spread of germs. When the kids head back to school, they can maintain the healthy habit with a little preparation beforehand.

These happy and healthy tips will ease everyone back into the daily school routine:

  1. Pack Smart – Backpacks help students keep everything in one place. This includes PURELL® JELLY WRAP™ Carriers. By hooking a colorful PURELL Advanced JELLY WRAP™ carrier on their backpack, they will have a constant reminder of the need to sanitize. Plus, Target currently has a coupon for $1 off with purchase of three PURELL® hand sanitizer items. PURELL® JELLY WRAP™ Carriers
  2. School Fuel – We all know breakfast is vitally important. Make sure the kids are well-fed before they head out the door. Keep them fueled through the day with a nutritious lunch. Plus, the same carriers you used on the backpack work great on lunchboxes. Or, grab PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes to slip into the lunchbox. Lunch is the ideal time to remind the kids to sanitize before eating.
  3. Stay Hydrated – Keeping your kids hydrated while in the classroom will increase their energy level, alertness, and concentration. Send a water bottle to school with them to help avoid sugary drinks, as well as less trips to the water fountain.
  4. Sleep Soundly – Sleep deprivation affects your entire body. Well-rested children learn better and feel happier. Therefore, make sure everyone is getting plenty of sleep before they leave for school each morning. You will all be glad you did.

Stop by Target for all of your back to school needs, including PURELL® hand sanitizer products.
