Sunscreen & Public Schools

Did you know it was prohibited to bring sunscreen to school? Public schools didn’t allow students to possess and use sunscreen while at school though kids were outside during recess and certain field trips. During the 2017 General Session, Rep. Craig Hall sponsored legislation to correct this surprising wrong.

The Utah Legislature passed H.B. 288 School Sunscreen Provision that made it legal for kids to bring and use sunscreen at school. Read the bill here.
