Dear Palmetto Elementary Families,
Thank you for your continued support through the various changes we have all experienced these past several weeks. We appreciate how much work and effort our administration, teachers and staff have put in behind the scenes to get our school ready to re-open on Monday.
That being said, although Palmetto has met all of the CDC and WHO regulations, we know many Palmetto families have the desire to strive for optimal air purification. Although standing air purification towers have not been deemed necessary, the PTA Board, through our own research and feedback from several Palmetto parents, find there to be sufficient evidence that these systems would be assets for our school both in the short and long term.
As a result, we would like to go a step above and launch a Flash Fundraiser to raise $8,000 in order to support the purchase of Medify Air Filtration Systems for each of our 33 classrooms and the cafeteria, as well as filters for two changes this school-year*.
Medify Air Purification Systems include H13 Medical Grade HEPA Filters which capture 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns. Aside from potential added COVID-19 protection, air purification systems provide increased air quality including protection from allergens, molds, and other viral pathogens, such as flu -- which can cause added complications for our students now and in the future.
In order to expedite ordering and delivery and avoid too much delay, we are launching this fundraiser today and will run it through Friday, October 9. In order to raise the necessary funds, we are asking for a suggested donation of $75 per student. Please give what you can.
Thank you for your support of this important initiative. We are all in this together.
Your Palmetto PTA Board
* If we are able to exceed our goal, we can consider purchasing purifiers for other locations in our school, such as the Media Center and beyond, as well as continue purchasing filters for all necessary filter changes as time goes on.*
