A: Parents are required to apply sunscreen to their children prior to coming to school in the morning. If parents provide written consent, staff will apply sunscreen to their child in the afternoon. Afternoon sunscreen is provided by the Center during the months of June, July, August, and September, or any time that the UV index is 4+. Parents may opt to send in their own sunscreen, but it may not be an aerosol or spray. Sunscreen may not be stored in children’s cubbies or anywhere within a child’s reach.
