Sunscreen and Insect Repellant

Children will be playing in areas of shade and sun.  Families are highly encouraged to provide protection from sun and insect-borne illness.   Only Sunscreen or sunblock with UVB and UVA protection of SPF 15 or higher will be applied.  Insect repellant may also be provided.  When public health authorities recommend use of insect repellents due to a high risk of insect-borne disease, only repellents containing DEET are used, and these are applied no more than once a day.  Families will receive a permission slip for the use of sunscreens and insect repellants in their registration paperwork
