    I would like an editable version of these hygiene posters for my high schoolers, they would probably think this is too 'babyish' however they still need the reminder.

      Hi Morgan, thanks for reaching out. We have a few variations of this poster and others available in our Hygiene collection - I hope you find one that will suit your high schoolers a little better.
