The school is now using green cleaning products.

Buildings Director Gary Haines says that makes for a healthier school. “In other districts they’ve surveyed show less sick leave and better attendance.”

And, Haines says the green products are saving the district green. He says, “We’re looking at approximately 30 percent savings over what we were spending.”

Hopefully, other area school districts will follow suit. Fewer sick kids, better attendance, more learning, and less money – I mean, it seems like a no-brainer.
