8 Creative Promotional Products for Schools that are Reopening

The 2021-2022 school year has finally arrived and due to the current pandemic, it looks quite different than usual.

From half-day timings or half-week schedules to remote distance learning, families and schools are trying to reopen schools safely and bring students back to the classroom.

Also, the recommended school supplies for each grade have been altered. CDC has listed important guidelines for schools that are returning to campus. It includes a large supply of sanitizing products, wipes, and masks.

It’s definitely a challenge for everyone, to say the least. However, by giving away safe and handy promo items to the teaching staff and students, you can discover new and creative ways to protect your campus and improve morale.

Few Considerations to Keep in Mind:
