Hello Families,

Can you believe that today was a “Sunscreen Day”?  If the UV index is a 5 or above we need to apply sunscreen to children who will be outside more than 20 minutes.  We use a lotion from Rocky Mountain Sunscreen- here is information taken from their website ( explaining their product:

  • Enhanced Bonding Base Formula
    •   SPF 50 Broad Spectrum 400nm UVA / UVB with Avobenzone
    •   Water Resistant (80 Minutes)
  • Hypoallergenic Moisturizing Sunscreen
    •   Safe for daily use
    •   Greaseless and non-comedogenic
    •   Free of fragrance, DEA, nut oil, gluten, glycol, PABA, Casein, silicone, and retinyl palmitate.
  • Provides maximum FDA certified, broad spectrum protection. Allows skin to breathe and perspire, keeping body cool naturally. Bonding-based formulas do not wash away during water activities or periods of extreme perspiration.

If you choose to supply your own sunscreen for your child it needs to be a lotion – we do not use spray products.  The product needs to be given to a teacher – none can be stored in their cubby.
