NEEP Celebrates National Healthy Schools Day with a Special Local Tour


Join NEEP and HMFA Architects at Newburyport’s Bresnahan Elementary School

Lexington, MA April 3, 2017 – Since 2002, parents, teachers, school nurses, custodians, advocates, and agencies have promoted National Healthy Schools Day activities nationwide. This year is no different, and Tuesday, April 4, 2017 marks the 15th annual celebration. Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) is proud to partner on this initiative, and will celebrate with a tour at a local Massachusetts elementary school.

National Healthy Schools Day is coordinated by Healthy Schools Network in partnership with many agencies and organizations. Together, we promote the use of EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools guidance as well as other EPA environmental health guidelines and programs for schools and children’s health.

NEEP offers resources for those in charge of designing, building, and upkeeping schools and other public buildings.
