Personal Prevention Measures

Based on the current information, health officials are recommending local communities and schools should take the same steps to protect against coronavirus as we take to prevent the spread of everyday illnesses like the common cold or
the flu:

District Prevention Measures

Jarrell ISD custodians are using four professional-level cordless electrostatic hand sprayers, in addition to our medical grade cleaning supplies, to disinfect our schools, including classrooms, libraries, cafeterias and school buses.

On February 16, the district contracted with GermBlast to provide another layer of disinfection protection. Their process kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. GermBlast disinfects JISD facilities every three months. 

While our campuses are closed, custodial crews will continue to conduct a deep clean to disinfect and sanitize all campuses and facilities.
