The PA School Code was recently amended to include sun protection measures for students. Section 1414.10 (2) Of the PA School Code allows for the use of a non-aerosol topical sunscreen product by students in school if:
- The product is approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
- The parent/guardian must submit the form, allowing the student to use the topical sunscreen.
- The student must submit the form, stating that they are aware of the proper use and safety precautions of the product and will handle it appropriately.
The permission form can be found HERE. Please return to the school nurse.
