I agree, will not put sunscreen on anyone in family. Just shade at times and layers of clothing.

Sun is crucial. You need UVb to cure disease. Uva is the stuff that causes cancer, and they block UVb most of the time.

They have done studies BC Cancer Institute and studied outdoor workers, thinking they would find higher cancer rate, and instead found a significant decrease.

I'd print off studies and show the teachers and otherwise take kid out of that school.

If there was no previous notice of this policy you should be entitled to a refund for any remaining time on your contract.
They withheld important information that would have been a major deciding factor on whether or not you would have sent your child there.
Check every paper you signed and use a magnifying glass because if there is any mention of this policy there isn't much you can do.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69408511


Right...pretty much what my husband and I think.
He is definitely out of this school next year...

I have to ask THEM about our contract, this sucks!
 Quoting: Lilac.Nights


Unfortunately if you didn't save your copy of the contract, like you said you'd have to ask them.

You should still tell them that withholding the information regarding the policy constitutes fraud. Tell them you want to remove your son and get a prorated refund because of this fraud. Like I said, tell them that had they informed you of this ridiculous policy you would have taken your child to a more understanding school.

Let them know that they are segregating your child from his peers and making him an outcast in their eyes. You can also BS a bit, if you want and say he has been made fun of by others.

Tell them you want to see your signature showing you agreed to that policy.

Re: Sunscreen school policy I need advice I'm pissed
The bottom line to me is that if you care about your kid and especially if he is very light skinned, you need to protect him from the Sun. I understand your reluctance to rely on chemical concoctions with little or no proof they're safe, and I agree.

The problem is that the atmosphere and Sun have changed significantly.

We had this same debate with DEET back in the day. Boy the stuff worked, but you have to wonder if insects are so put off by it that they won't come within 20 feet of someone wearing it, what is it doing to us? Most of us kids used it but there was a gradual increasing awareness that it could make you feel ill, that you could taste it after putting it on your skin which meant it was getting in your system, and that if overused it was worst than being bitten by gnats , black flies and mosquitoes. I generally felt off when using it and suspected it was affecting me neurologically.

To this day people still use insect repellant with DEET in it, but the manufactures no longer use DEET as a selling point, it is listed as an ingredient in font so small you need a magnifying glass to read it, and the full name of the chemical is used instead of the long-vilified DEET acronym.

My advice to you as a parent is to educate your kids on the dangers of direct unabated Sunlight. if the Sunlight is coming in from a window, it's generally safe, but if there is nothing between the childs skin and the Sun the danger of DNA damage to cells is almost certain, and DNA damage causes mutation and cancer. The Sun also damages skin in other ways.

Again, i implore you, teach your kids to wear brimmed hats, UV blocking sunglasses, and as much clothing covering the skin as is bearable. New fabrics have been invented that have zero insulating factors and that actually make the child feel much cooler than if his skin is exposed directly to sunlight. These tight fitting fabrics are comfortable and block 99% of the damaging UV, while sicking sweat and increasing the evaporation cooling process, and the kid doesn't have to cover himself in chemicals.

There is some truth to kids needing Sunlight to process certain vitamins, but the amount is very very small, perhaps 15 minutes a day over 1 square foot of skin area..

Re: Sunscreen school policy I need advice I'm pissed
I don't see a problem with a sunscreen policy...who's to say that if they let your child play outside and he got a bad sunburn, that you wouldn't try to sue or go after them. They have to cover their butts too. But they're idiots for putting those toxic sunscreens in kids. Parents need to step up and research.

My four year old has very fair skin and she could burn easily like I always did. I use coconut oil with a bit of carrot seed oil mixed in if we're out in the early morning or evening sun. Carrot seed oil has a natural SPF of 25-30. Coconut oil is around 4. In the hot sun I use a homemade balm with beeswax, coconut oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter, red raspberry seed oil, and non-nano zinc oxide. We also use an after sun oil with almond, sesame, aloe Vera, chamomile, lavender, and geranium oils. It's awesome for extending your tan! There's a company called Badger Balm that has a nice sunscreen if you don't want to make it yourself :)

There are natural things that work as sun screen - carrot oil is one - there is also zinc - eczema in some clear up with a gluten free diet - so that might be tried and then there will be no issue.

Natural Homemade Sunscreen

Homemade Natural Sunscreen Recipe very moisturizing and easy to make 300x157 Natural Homemade Sunscreen
Print
Homemade natural sunscreen with beneficial oils, zinc oxide and beeswax for water protection.
Author: Wellness Mama
Recipe type: Remedy
Ingredients
½ cup almond or olive oil (can infuse with herbs first if desired)
¼ cup coconut oil (natural SPF 4)
¼ cup beeswax
2 Tablespoons Zinc Oxide (This is a non-nano version that won't be absorbed into the skin. Be careful not to inhale the powder).
Optional: up to 1 teaspoon Red Raspberry Seed Oil
Optional: up to 1 teaspoon Carrot Seed Oil
Optional: up to 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
Optional: 2 tablespoons Shea Butter (natural SPF 4-5)
Optional: Essential Oils, Vanilla Extract or other natural extracts to suit your preference
Instructions
Combine ingredients except zinc oxide in a pint sized or larger glass jar. I have a mason jar that I keep just for making lotions and lotion bars, or you can even reuse a glass jar from pickles, olives, or other foods.
Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place over medium heat.
Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water.
As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, add the zinc oxide, stir in well and pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars (pint size) are great for this. It will not pump well in a lotion pump!
Stir a few times as it cools to make sure zinc oxide is incorporated.
Use as you would regular sunscreen. Best if used within six months.

 Quoting: diette


I believe that it would be sensible for schools to erect safe areas for children to play outdoors while being shielded from Ultraviolet radiation. The dangers are much worst than just a sunburn, it could kill a kid. An exposure that happens today can result in the development of a highly metastasizing cancer called melanoma and a diagnosis is almost a certain death. UV radiation also severely damages eyes, the more UV radiation that enters your eyes the faster they degrade.

I've seen what the Sun is doing to kids whose parents don't take any precautions. Sunburns are not fun for anybody, but for kids they can be especially damaging and painful.

If that kind of material were used over large areas of skin on a kid, it would interfere with the evaporative cooling process causing severe overheating.

It's simple. Do your want your son to get sunlight, or do you want a long drawn out court case during which time your son gets no sunlight?

You could win your case (unlikely since it is a private school) and your son's eczema could get worse.

Which is more important to you? Proving your point?

In life we all lose sometimes. It happens sometimes. The school screwed you and your son. That's life.

Maybe you can get the tuition back, but that's doubtful.

Move on. Do what's best for your son.

Re: Sunscreen school policy I need advice I'm pissed
The atmosphere is thinner in the northern hemisphere, hence it does not matter how safe you think it is in comparison to other areas.

As for vitamin d levels being low and needing the sun to produce it - well, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes TOPS for the body to produce it from solar exposure. But, with the overall increase in UV rays hitting the surface - those levels will crash anyway as whatever is produced is used up to repair damage. Sunscreen or not, yoru child is not safe in the sun beyond a few minutes. Take it as you will...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69455431


did you know that sunscreen like glass allows the correct wavelenght of light through to the skin to produce vitamin d2. the body has to convert this d2 into d3, which in turn takes up d3. leaving a net loss of d3.

understand?

Glass actually causes the harmful rays to come through.

When did schools suddenly become "in loco parentis"?

Friend went up to see the principal and the principal said the school and it's personnel are "in loco parentis" and my friend said "I don't remember giving you that permission" and the principal said something about it being the law.

Cause they won't even let you take an aspirin in school unless it is administered by the school nurse accompanies by a doctor's note. A friend signs her kid out of school to give medication and then signs the kid back into school cause she doesn't want them knowing her family business. So, how come they can give sunscreen? And, if sunscreen, what else will they administer? I mean if you tried to put sunscreen on the teacher, that would be assault.

Yep, they hold all the cards. A friend was threatened by the high school principal that if she did not "drop the issue immediately" her son's permanent record would reflect the incident. Which would have meant whether or not he gets into the college of his choice. They weild a lot of power and they don't let you see all of the "permanent record".

Tell them also that you've applied sunscreen in the morning before he goes to school, so they needn't

Hey op, just thinking here --- another BIG thing -

Thinking this all is way to intimate an act to be having the teachers applying sunscreen to the kids faces, necks and arms - that is a lot of intimate touching and rubbing.

We already know that child pedos gravitate toward work with children - now they want license to rub the children's faces and bodies - big freekin yikes!

I mean - Hastert - 3rd in command at highschool in Yorkville 40 years ago!!!

This used to be the discussions on these sites - - discussion about all the pedos and their modus operandum and how they got caught and found out - ie satanic ritual abuse -- anyone??!!

These teachers who want to feel up our kids -- teachers who parents really don't know squat at all about -- being given license to touch the kids with lotion --

Worse then the chemical damage done!
It is like grooming for sexual abuse!!!

But then again they always do use these seemingly harmless things as vehicles to do something perverse !!

A note should be no problem. As recess such short time, & USA kids get such little outside time daily. Sun good for eczema, immune system, & rashes.. Unless of course lupus, etc..

And the goo screens gunk up pours, cause allergic reactions, and re all the ingredients and n some children's screen a carcinogen.

A good sun hat that covers neck from burn too is good, but this school is bs..

I don't agree. Your tuition money is precious to them. you remove that money due to a sunscreen policy - and let them know that - I can assure you there will be internal discussion, mostly angry discussion, about how to handle this differently "going forward".

you are going to win this because parents have unequalled power in the ed system.

NOT parents as a group - they are disregarded entirely - but the loud squeaky wheel that gives a teacher a bad name with the administration.

Does this private school have a board or group of directors, the ones that make hiring and firing decisions about the principal/head of school, and other faculty?

those are the people you need to talk to.

I have experience with private schools as well as public ones. ANY RULE can be broken or bent. ANY.

Re: Sunscreen school policy I need advice I'm pissed
First - I'm going to bet that the school got sued by someone whose kid got sunburned. So now the insurance company requires the sunscreen. So, yes get a copy of that "license".

Second - I found this article:
[link to forums.macresource.com] which says that it's ILLEGAL in Washington, for teachers to apply sunscreen on students. The original referenced source link doesn't exist. But I'm sure if you dig, you can find the law and if it's been repealed or not. If it's still in effect, then that beats the insurance requirement.


Third - Funny enough if you google "schools forcing sunscreen", instead of articles mandating it, it's all about schools BANNING students from having it, for multitudes of reasons.

Edited to add this link where they say that Washington bans kids from having sunscreen. So if the kids can't bring it to school, and the teachers can't put it on...*so confused*
hater site/article/247187-Kids-Suffer-Serious-Sunburns-Because-Wash​ington-State-Law-Forbids-Sunscreen-Lotion-in-School

Fourth - I think for recess and lunch time it's ridiculous to require sunscreen. Kids who must have it would have already notified the school and handled it. BUT...I would say, to find an alternative, like the pure zinc oxide (they make colorless and fun colors, depending on what your kid would like) - for field trips where he will be out in the sun for a long amount of time.



Good luck!!

It's simple. Do your want your son to get sunlight, or do you want a long drawn out court case during which time your son gets no sunlight?

You could win your case (unlikely since it is a private school) and your son's eczema could get worse.

Which is more important to you? Proving your point?

In life we all lose sometimes, It happens sometimes. The school screwed you and your son. That's life.

Maybe you can get the tuition back, but that's doubtful.

Move on. Do what's best for your son.

I can't win...and I know that. I'm just shocked that this is allowed and mainly shocked by the robotic response to the parents.

Yep, they hold all the cards. A friend was threatened by the high school principal that if she did not "drop the issue immediately" her son's permanent record would reflect the incident. Which would have meant whether or not he gets into the college of his choice. They weild a lot of power and they don't let you see all of the "permanent record".
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 67275676


That's when you talk to your friend that will have a special heart to heart with the principal. It works, really.

The wrath of God is not to play around with, especially not for powertripping principals and other scumbuckets in high places.

Re: Sunscreen school policy I need advice I'm pissed
When did schools suddenly become "in loco parentis"?

Friend went up to see the principal and the principal said the school and it's personnel are "in loco parentis" and my friend said "I don't remember giving you that permission" and the principal said something about it being the law.

Cause they won't even let you take an aspirin in school unless it is administered by the school nurse accompanies by a doctor's note. A friend signs her kid out of school to give medication and then signs the kid back into school cause she doesn't want them knowing her family business. So, how come they can give sunscreen? And, if sunscreen, what else will they administer? I mean if you tried to put sunscreen on the teacher, that would be assault.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 67275676


Since it was socialist feminists that became principals, we have a socialist problem in Sweden.

But talking hard to them always solves the problem.
They may look strong on the outside but they are breakable, we broke a principal that was power tripping, this during when socialism was hardcore here in Sweden. Never had a problem after breaking the power tripper.

That's what you need to do, break the power tripper, bring the power tripper back down to Earth, make them realize they are not immortal.

Meanwhile, other schools won't allow even their extreme fair skin children to bring their own sunscreen for field trips. Because they reason that sunscreen is a drug.

Why are people still sending their children to these schools? I have a teaching license and wouldn't willingly send an innocent child to most schools in this county.
