With school districts across Texas closing due to flu outbreaks, Waxahachie ISD has taken extra precautions to eliminate germs and viruses with a new, handy cleaning device.
In December, WISD purchased nine handheld Protexus Electrostatic sprayers and a backpack version of the sanitizing machine. The equipment is shared across the district, disinfecting classrooms, administrative buildings and gyms.
Ruthe Valles, the custodian coordinator for the district, explained, “We spend less time, and we save more time to do the whole school. I believe this will also catch anything that my custodians might have missed. This will reach spaces that they are not able to reach.”
