Please make sure you have a new bottle of sunscreen at school. Old bottles expire and or loose their effectiveness over time.
Sunscreen will be applied twice daily. In the morning before going outside and again after nap before heading outside.
Sunscreen is considered a medication so we will need you to sign a sunscreen medication slip prior to using sunscreen. These slips are available in the classroom. Please ask a teacher.
Regulations state that sunscreen must be labeled with child's first and last name and must be used for only that child.
Licensing prohibits us from using any aerosol sunscreen products on children.
We also recommend that your child has a hat at school at all times.
The swim roster and schedule is posted at the top of the newsletter
