Good afternoon Santa Maria ISD Family,
The Santa Maria Independent School District Custodial, Maintenance and Transportation Department is providing update on the COVID-19 prevention for all school District campuses. We have started using universal precautions, by using GS neutral disinfectant 103 for highly touched surfaces, example: door knobs, water fountains, sinks and toilet flashers, light switches, etc., This process is being done four (4) times a day.
Student and teacher desks are being disinfected with the same disinfectant at the end of each day. All classrooms and locker rooms are disinfected with a fogger that covers the whole room every other Friday, we are also installing hand sanitizer for all offices, libraries, gym locker rooms and classrooms.
All School buses are also included in the same process of disinfecting at the end of each AM/PM route and using the disinfectant fogger every other Friday. Custodians and Maintenance staff are required to use latex gloves during this cleaning process.
Please continue monitoring social media and our website as we will provide updates on continued measure to ensure the health of our students and staff.
NOTE: GS Neutral Disinfectant 103 and Pheno-D fogger, are used in Hospitals for such purposes. This pH quaternary disinfectant cleaner formulated to kill a broad spectrum of microorganisms. Effective against HIV-1 virus, HIV-2 virus, Hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C and Types 1&2 viruses on pre-cleaned surfaces /objects previously soiled with blood/body fluids.
