Infectious Diseases Resources for Elementary Educators

The daily mix of students and staff provides numerous opportunities for spread of illness because large groups of children share the same rooms, toys/activities, eating spaces and bathroom facilities.

Educators play a key role in preventing the spread of common childhood diseases by educating children and their caregivers on infection prevention and control practices.

The health unit offers a variety of services to support student health and infection prevention, including information related to common childhood illnesses, a list of Diseases of Public Health Significance (formerly reportable diseases) and notification processes, and support with infection prevention and control in schools.

  • Infection Prevention Resources – Resources available for order and/or download through the health unit. Resources include: hand washing and hand sanitizing signs in English and French, hand hygiene videos and slide shows.
