Nurse Amy's Health Tip
SUNBURN--Most people think of trips to the beach when they think of sunburn, but it isn’t unusual for pediatricians to see kids with burns in early spring, before parents have thought to take out the sunscreen. Every sunburn increases the risk of future skin cancer.If your child will be outside for more than 20 minutes, even on cloudy days, apply sunscreen. Keep fresh tubes in the car, in your purse, in your child’s school or athletic bag. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends parents use broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB blocking), water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to any skin that will not be covered by clothing. Use plenty. Don’t be stingy! Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours, but avoid — if possible — in babies younger than 6 months. Babies should be covered with cool, light clothing and kept in the shade.
- Smoking is prohibited in all school zone areas.
- Students are NOT to be picked up or dropped off in the parking lot or in the Bus Pick-up area.
