District takes preventive flu measures

As the flu season continues to be a problem in our community, Zapata. Co. Independent School District has new tools to help keep students and staff healthy. The district has purchased several high-tech, electrostatic disinfection units for use in schools and buses.

“While we have always had cleaning and disinfecting regimens in our schools and buses, these units will greatly improve our effectiveness,” said Pedro Morales Operations and Support Services Director. “The combination of the solutions used, and the technology will help reach more surfaces, especially in harder to reach areas.”

The units use electrodes to introduce an attractive charge and atomizes the Clorox sanitizing/disinfecting solutions. The charged particles are attracted to surfaces in a way that allows the solution to reach and wrap around surfaces.
