• Students and Sunscreen

    Any student in a public school, under the jurisdiction of a local board of education, or in a non-public school may possess and apply federal Food and Drug Administration-regulated over-the-counter sunscreen at school and at school-based events, not withstanding any other provision of law, including any rule of the State Board of Education or the State Board of Nursing.  

    Any student, parent, or guardian requesting a school board employee to apply sunscreen to a student shall present to the nurse a Parent Prescriber Authorization Form signed by the parent/guardian.  A physician signature is not required.
