Some Mahoning Valley schools are taking a new approach when it comes to fighting flu season. 

Mathews, Campbell, Hermitage, and Brookfield schools have received a cordless electronic handheld sprayer from Victory Innovations.

This is all apart of the "Keep Kids Healthy Initiative."  The initiative was established to help public schools prevent the spread of the flu and other viruses through access to better tools and technology. 

"We've been impressed by the incredible work that so many school districts are already doing to keep kids and teachers healthy this flu season, and we're grateful for the opportunity to help strengthen those preventative measures," said Kyle Wheaton, president of Victory Innovations. "With our patented sprayers, schools can quickly implement a critical line of defense against harmful germs and viruses."

With the cordless device schools will apply disinfectant in classrooms, gyms, cafeterias, bathrooms, buses, lockers, and various other places in the school that receives high-traffic.
