Dear Nate Silver: IT’S NOT MY FAULT!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere
Once again I am reminded of the power – both good and bad – of social media. My post today discussing the results from the latest Senate forecast models is up here at U.S. News.  I should point out that I very much appreciate the opportunity to post there – it enables me to reach […]

Leon Panetta: Traitor, Patriot – Or Something Else!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere
The publication of Leon Panetta’s memoir Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace has created the predictable but completely misguided reaction among media pundits of all partisan stripes.

Welcome Fall…Welcome Cold and Flu Season!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

As with any season, comes changing weather and surroundings.

Here in the Midd Custodial Department is no different.  We are prepared with an aresenal of bacteria fighting tools to help keep our campus healthy.  Every year we expect the pretty predictable flu season to hit and work in conjunction with the  Parton Health Center.

If that happens we are prepared to ramp our efforts up by sanitizing touchpoints more often.  By doing this it reduces the chance students and staff get sick by touching items such as:

  • Door knobs
  • Railings
  • Light switches
  • Chair backs
  • Just about anything you touch!

Many people do not realized that the easiest thing one can do is to wash their hands regularly with soap and water!  The most important thing to rember is to wash for 20 seconds(usually about the time it takes to recite the English alphabet).  Some other tips to remember:

  • Wash thoroughly underneath fingernails because these areas provide great hiding places for germs and bacteria.
  • When coughing or sneezing use your elbow or arm to sheild it.

Keep these tips in mind and when you see your custodians wiping down touchpoints make sure to thank them for keeping  you healthy!
