For Lyme Consolidated School Parents/Guardians:
P.A. 19-60 allows school students, six years of age or older, to possess and self-apply an over-the-counter sunscreen product while in school prior to engaging in any outdoor activity, provided a written authorization is signed by a student’s parent/guardian and is submitted to the school nurse.
The sunscreen must be non-aerosol and must be approved by the FDA for over-the-counter use for purposes of limiting ultraviolent light-induced sun damage.
The Board of Education adopted policy #5141.214, “Student Sunscreen Use,” pertaining to this new legislation.
If you wish for your child to possess and apply sunscreen at school, please click on the Register Now button, enter your child's information, and sign the agreement at the bottom of this page.
Your completed form will then become available to the Health Office staff at Lyme Consolidated School.
