Phoenix Distributes More Than 1 Million Pieces of Personal Protective Equipment to Schoolshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/education/1493Education9/8/2020 8:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1493/Newsroom_Education_012.jpgPhoenix Distributes More Than 1 Million Pieces of Personal Protective Equipment to Schools<div class="ExternalClassECA2AE7B9DE94A5B864699692A019633"><html> <p>More than one million pieces of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) have been ordered to help Phoenix schools reopen for the 2020-2021 school year. Cloth masks with clear windows for visible expressions are a priority for teachers who have students with hearing impairments, a disability, learning English as a second language, or learning to read. Regular cloth masks were also ordered to allow for continued use throughout the school year. </p> <p>“It’s imperative that school administrators and educators are equipped with the resources they need to invite our kids back into safe school environments,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Schools are bedrock institutions for Phoenix families - providing meals, health services, and a safe place for kids while parents are working.” </p> <p>Phoenix is working with local school districts to help ensure that there will be a strong supply of PPE to keep students and educators safe. Other supplies that were ordered include 1,500 gallons of hand sanitizer and 38,000 isolation gowns. </p> <p>“Our hope is that by providing PPE and sanitizer, we can ease the burden as they adapt to an enormous shift in service delivery for our community,” said Mayor Gallego.</p> <p>As Phoenix school districts begin to transition to in-class instruction, the city understands the importance each school is placing on the health and safety of their students, staff, and educators.</p> <p>The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation is that schools include the following in their reopening plans for in-person classes: cloth face coverings for students, teachers and staff, no handling of common items, frequent handwashing and regular deep-cleaning of highly touched surfaces in school facilities.<br> <br>Distribution of the PPE to schools began today at the Phoenix Convention Center.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/educationNewseducationEducation
