8306 – Administration of Sunscreen at School

Adopted  7/11/17

Any person, including students, parents, and school personnel, may possess topical sunscreen products to help prevent sunburn while on school property, at a school-related event or activity, or at summer camp.  As expected in RCW 28A.210.260, a topical sunscreen product may be possessed and applied without the prescription or note of a licensed health care professional if the product is regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration for over-the-counter use.  Aerosol sunscreens will not be admissible in school.

For student use, a sunscreen product must be applied by a parent or guardian.  It is preferable for sunscreen to be applied before and/or after school hours under supervision of a parent/guardian.

School personnel are not expected to assist students in the application of sunscreen.
