That was just one of the lessons Isla and her classmates learned Wednesday morning when Katherine Boyle, a public health educator from Warren County Public Health, visited Queensbury UFSD’s universal prekindergarten classrooms to talk to students about hand washing. 

“Germs can be anywhere,” Boyle said, “which means we have to wash our hands.”Woman squirts substance onto child's hand.
