Klein ISD Nutrition and Food Services Supervisors Sew Masks for Employees
When the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated their recommendations stating that cloth face coverings should be worn in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Klein ISD Nutrition and Food Services supervisors Pamela Mallory and Adrian Hansell jumped into action to sew over 120 cloth face masks for Klein ISD Nutrition and Food Services employees.
“We knew that we wanted to take care of our people that are on the frontlines here in Klein ISD,” Pamela said.
Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, Klein ISD Nutrition and Food Services staff have worked hard to provide meals to Klein families in need through a Curbside Meal Pick-Up service. Currently, the department serves meals on Monday and Thursday at six campuses across the district. For Curbside Meal Pick-Up information, click HERE.
“We knew that no one would be able to buy masks anywhere because they were sold out and we wanted to make sure that medical-grade masks were reserved for medical professionals so we just decided to sew them,” Adrian said.
After thorough research surrounding CDC recommendations, a YouTube search, and a quick trip to Hobby Lobby (while observing social distancing guidelines, of course), Pamela and Adrian were ready to protect the Klein Family!
The masks are complete with two layers of cotton fabric and are reversible so our folks never forget which side goes over their mouth and which faces out – which means they are super cross-contamination-proof!
