Can my child carry sunscreen or bug spray with them?

Posted by:

The answer is yes, if the student is applying the sunscreen or bug spray to themselves.  If a teacher or nurse will be applying the sunscreen (Act 2017-278) or bug spray, the nurse will need a form on file signed by the parent.  We highly recommend that for younger students needing assistance in applying sunscreen that spray sunscreen be sent to school.  A doctor is not required for sunscreen or bug spray but is required for all other over the counter medications.
