Reminder: Sunscreen Notice

The district policy changed late last year regarding sunscreen at school.  The Tacoma Public School policy now states that if a student can apply the sunscreen themselves, the parent will supply the sunscreen and the student can put it on themselves.  The parent must also send along a note giving permission for the child to apply the sunscreen.

If a student can’t apply it to themselves, then a physician’s order is required and the staff will apply it. 

The parental note or the physician's order will be given to the School Nurse, Therese Nation.

Field day is Monday and right now it looks like it will be in the 80’s.  I suggest students have hats and stay covered up as much as possible.  Thank you.
