Sun Protection in Schools

Updated: Jan 1





Sunglasses protect children's eyes from harmful UV rays. Make sure they know how to put them on correctly and take them off properly.


When choosing hats for children, look for ones with wide brims that cover the ears and sides of the head. Avoid hats with small brims that only cover the top of the head.

Wear loose-fitting clothing that covers arms and legs. Choose clothes that are lightweight and breathable. Look for shirts that button down the front and long pants. Wear sunscreen lotion daily if your child spends a lot of time playing outdoors.




Umbrellas provide protection from the sun's rays for children. Choose umbrellas that provide adequate coverage and fit comfortably.


Apply sunscreen to exposed skin on a regular basis. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 50+ and UVA/UVB protection. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours, or every hour if swimming or sweating.
