FRISCO, TX — Schools in the Frisco Independent School District tested extremely low for bacterial levels thanks to a strict cleaning regimen designed to curb student absences from illness, according to the Frisco Enterprise Star.

According to the story, tests done with a luminometer showed readings of 16 for cafeteria tables — food-grade levels are anything under 30 — and 117 for the floor in front of an exit, both of which would be low, even for a hospital.

Johnny Fowler, vice president of Amerasheld Antimicrobial Solutions in North Carolina, visited the Frisco schools after hearing of their unusual cleanliness, the story stated.

Fowler said: "My gosh, you can see your face in the floor. These schools are the cleanest I have ever seen."

Mohamed Mohamed, head of the custodial department at Frisco schools, uses steam cleaning and disinfectant equipment coupled with a rigid protocol for daily cleaning of tables, serving equipment, floors and even the wrestling mats used in gym class.

Mohamed said that his goal is to have zero absences due to flu or other illness, the story added.
