During a typical school day, children spend a considerable amount of time outside. We have two recesses and often have outdoor Gym, Daily Physical Activity and other activities. With the summer sunshine, we remind parents of some sun-safe practices and encourage you to:
Help your child apply sunscreen and lip balm before they leave for school in the morning.
If your child will be bringing sunscreen to school, please teach them how to apply it independently.
Provide a sunhat for your child.
Send sunglasses for outdoor activities.
Have a lightweight, long-sleeved shirt in your child’s backpack for extra protection.
We encourage children to bring a reusable stainless steel or BPA-free plastic water bottle to school. They may refill these at our drinking fountains to ensure they are properly hydrated throughout the day.
