High School Hygiene

Absenteeism has more serious implications as students reach high school age. Studies show that absence from school is linked to:

  • lower student achievement
  • higher school dropout rates

Studies show that only 58% of female and 48% of male high school students wash their hands after using the bathroom. Clearly, there’s room for improvement.

The KIMBERLY-CLARK PROFESSIONAL* program continues to motivate students, faculty and staff to break the chain of germ transmission in order to create a healthier learning environment.



Surfaces teachers touch have 10x more bacteria per square inch than other professions.

When students use sanitizer in a school setting, they are 33% less likely to be absent due to illness.
