Schools are no longer required to obtain a medical provider order to allow a student to carry and use sunscreen in school if:
1. The sunscreen is used for the purpose of avoiding overexposure to the sun and not for medical treatment of an injury or illness;
2. The sunscreen is approved by the FDA for over-the-counter use; and
3. The student's parent or guardian provides written permission for the student to carry and use sunscreen.
A student who is unable to physically apply sunscreen may be assisted by unlicensed personnel when directed to do so by the student, if permitted by a parent or guardian and authorized by the school.
