Sun SafetySun Safety is a priority at Devonshire!

To keep your children safe from the harmful rays of the sun, please consider the following ‘sun smart’ strategies:

-       apply sunscreen every morning;

-       wear long sleeve shirts;

-       come to school wearing a sun or baseball cap;

-       practice self-application of sunscreen with your child;

-       aerosol sprays are not permitted; and

-       send a bottle of non-scented sunscreen in your child’s backpack so that they can re-apply throughout the day (label the bottle with your child’s name).

RE:                 Sunscreen Application for Students by Staff

 


Now that the warm, sunny weather has finally arrived, the issue of sun protection for students has been raised by parents and staff.

 

We are aware that it is common for schools to provide parents and students with reminders about safe sun practices, for example, applying sunscreen, wearing of hats and light long sleeve clothing and pants.   Generally speaking, it is our expectation that responsibility for applying sunscreen rests with parents and /or students should be responsible for the self-application of sunscreen although some oversight/supervision may be required in the case of young children.

 

However, there may be situations where, due to a disability, a student may require more intensive interventions.  In these situations, staff will be asked to assist the student with the application of the sunscreen.

 

If you have not already done so, you may want to send a message home to parents communicating the following:
