More than fifty partnering agencies and nonprofit advocacy groups are joining with Healthy Schools Network to celebrate the 17th annual National Healthy Schools Day on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. With a theme of “A Healthy School for Every Child: Eliminating Hazards in Schools and in Child Care Facilities”, activities will focus on lead in water and paint, improving indoor air, as well as reducing the presence and use of hazards such as pesticides, and conventional cleaning products.  See participants’ logos and links at National Healthy Schools Day

Since 2002, parents, teachers, school nurses, custodians, advocates, and agencies have promoted National Healthy Schools Day activities nationwide. Whether you are at the beginning stages of investigating school environments or have an established Indoor Air/Environmental Quality program, we invite you to host a local activity that educates others and celebrates your school’s successes.

National Healthy Schools Day is coordinated by Healthy Schools Network in partnership with many agencies and organizations. Together we promote the use of EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools guidance as well as other EPA environmental health guidelines and programs for schools and children’s health.
