Back to School with RealShield for educators and students.

Select the right protection for students return to school. RealShield face shield covers the eyes, nose and mouth as well as preventing you from touching your face.

Based on the analysis and review of more than forty peer-reviewed studies on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and the unique socialization needs of students, the paper written and researched by TL NGSS Consulting is a synopsis of emerging academic research and literature related to the successes and challenges of reducing the spread of COVID-19 with consideration of the social-emotional well-being of PreK-12 stakeholders.

"As education experts, we synthesized recommendations for practical use of available PPE options in classrooms as a decision-making guide in how to return to classrooms safely," the abstract reads. "All research and literature taken together point to high-quality plastic PPE face shields as offering the greatest protection while still allowing much-needed face to face collaboration in the classroom," says white paper authors Amy Argento and Marissa Stillittano, of TL NGSS Consulting.

According to the white paper, without a vaccine or known treatment for COVID 19, a system of good classroom hygiene, frequent handwashing and use of a face shield is the most responsible approach to safely reopening schools this fall.

"Faced with the prospect of working with students and my own children returning to school, I wanted to be sure we had the best protection while still engaging in meaningful classroom interactions," said Amy Argento, Ed.D

RealShield™ by Racing Optics Inc., an affordable premium face-covering made in the USA is quickly becoming the gold standard for educators and parents across the country as they look for a durable PPE solution for students and teachers re-entering the classroom.

"As a parent, educator, and cancer patient, finding a realistic option to protect my family and myself is critical. Research keeps bringing me back to a face shield as the best option for long term wear and protection for us all." added Marissa Stillittano, Ed.D.

The company is producing face shields in two sizes: one for adults and another for youth. The shield fits most 3-10-year-olds. Both sizes of face coverings are available in a retail pack of four shields. Schools can order bulk packs in quantities of 50 units for teachers and staff and also for elementary students.  School districts can inquire about volume and pallet pricing by contacting [email protected] for additional details.

WASHINGTON — Russia interfered in the 2016 election and may try to sway next year's vote as well. But it's not the only nation with an eye on U.S. politics. American officials sounding the alarm about foreign efforts to disrupt the 2020 election include multiple countries in that warning.
