Healthy Schools, Healthy People, It’s a SNAP! (School Network for Absenteeism Prevention) is a grassroots, education-based effort to improve health by making handwashing an integral part of the school day. This program is designed to get the entire school community talking about clean hands by providing tools for incorporating hand hygiene into multiple subject areas and activities. And it's a great way to get recognition for your school and share your success stories with others!
