Sun protection for students at school, with permission
 
May 30, 2019
 
Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
At Otselic Valley Central School we acknowledge the importance of sun protection and want staff and pupils to enjoy the sun safely.
 
Please apply sunscreen to your child before they come to school on hot days. The long lasting protection types are recommended.
 
If your child is prone to burning and you feel they may need an additional application, please send in an F D A approved, labeled bottle of suncreen, which your child should give to their teacher. The school will not supply sunscreen. Your child will be able to apply their sunscreen to themselves when needed under the supervision of a classroom staff member. Younger children may require some assistance with this. Please complete the permission form  if you would like your child to apply their sunscreen in school and if you give permission for a staff member to apply sunscreen if your child is unable to do so themselves.
 
It is also advisable to provide your child with a sun hat/cap on hot days and we will encourage children to sit in the shade as needed and drink plenty of water. You may also send in a water bottle for them to use throughout the day.
 
Sincerely,
Stacie Morse, RN
PK-12 School Nurse
