Please wash your hands often!







Dear students, teachers and parents, 

      How are you?  

     Recently I found a lot of students suffered from stomach flu.  A lot of students took sick leaves in the past 2 weeks.   Here I would like to remind everyone that "washing your hands often and correctly is very important."  

     I think the cold weather and the iced-cold water are the reasons why everyone doesn't like to wash hands correctly.  It takes time.  However, it takes more time to recover from stomach flu.  Therefore, please do apply the soap to your hands and scrub your hands together at least 20 seconds.  It is one of the best ways to keep germs and bacteria far away from you.  

    I found some webpages talking about washing hands correctly.   You can get more useful information from those websites.  

      Hope everyone can stay healthy in the winter!

Best regards,
