During the summer, SKPS has been working to ensure that our supplies in schools support environmental health. Unfortunately, though, some of our back-to-school supply lists contain supplies that are not allowed in our schools. Some of these items contain potentially harmful chemicals and they should not be accepted out of concern for the safety and health of our students and staff.
Please update your school supply lists to reflect the following:
Items not to be accepted:
- Clorox (or other brand) disinfectant wipes
- Liquid soap
- Hand sanitizer
- Other items containing chemicals
Many lists also ask for baby wipes. Huggies unscented wipes is the only product that has been approved for school use. In addition, Elmer’s Liquid School Glue is strongly recommended over other liquid glue products.
Moving forward, we recommend that you closely follow the district’s standard school supply list.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the level office or Vonnie Good with Safety and Risk Management Services at 503-399-3070.
