Clean, Green, and Toxin-free!

Think of all of the hours a child spends at school and the fact that children are far more vulnerable to environmental toxins than adults. We make decisions at school based on current guidelines for avoiding and reducing exposure to environmental toxins and we aim to help parents do the same at home.  Here, we have provided resources and related articles for your reference.
