School Indoor Air Quality

Why are my kids always coming home sick from school?

     Have you noticed a musty smell when you walk into your childs school?  Maybe you have noticed that your child is having more difficulty with learning and comprehension in his/her new school.  You may notice that your child seems healthy when they leave for school, but show signs of a cold when they come home.  These are common signs of poor indoor air quality and the need for UV air cleaners.

     Mold and viruses attack your childs immune system and distract the mind and body from learning and participating.  Those who contract allergic symptoms (including children) spend less time in groups and less time doing physical activities.

Mold

     There are more than a thousand species of mold, according to the Centers for Disease Control.  Almost every species of mold has the ability to affect human health. The most common mold exposure symptoms are respiratory problems, allergic reactions or cold and flu-like symptoms caused by the presence of spores floating in the air.  Mold is one of the highest rated health risks among students, due to inadequate ventilation, lack of high efficiency filtration with UV air cleaners, improperly controlled humidity levels, leaking roofs and improperly maintained heating and cooling systems.  The impact on children can interfere with their development mentally and physically, because their lungs are still developing.

Your responsibility

Get involved with your childs school environment as well as your own home.

  1. Realize that children spend a significant amount of their day in the school environment. If there is a mold problem at school, your childs health and learning potential may be negatively impacted.
  2. Walk through your childs school building and watch and smell for signs of mold as you would do in your own home.
  3. Pay attention if your child consistently leaves home healthy and comes home sick from school.
  4. If you believe there is a problem, bring up the issue with the school administration.
