Sunblock = 'Medication'?

Kids go to school and have a 'Field Day'. Outside for over 5 hours. One of them even has a paper on file w/ the school due to sun sensitivity. Teachers aren't allowed to let students even put it on themselves w/o a doctors note. All get severely burned.

I can see not putting in on the students themselves but WTF? When did Coppertone become a pharmaceutical company?

This is the kind of stupid, lawsuit happy world we've allowed to be created.

Maybe it's because the Teacher's can't touch the student in that "rubbing" manner - only a Union Official is allowed to do that.

Hmm, some clothing is now being offered with UV protection.

Maybe they should start requiring all kids to have a prescription to wear clothes.

To have to have a doctors note before they put on a hat.

(( Now I'm going to regret typing that and giving them ideas ))

"Our policy follows the state law which allows district to establish the rules for how medications, both over-the-counter and prescription medication, is handled in the school," he said. "Our policy is that any of that medication requires a doctor's order for kids to take it at school."

Minor correction: The state law doesn't establish crap. It authorizes the district to throw together something idiotic, call it policy, and have it be binding and enforceable. This statement simultaneously says "Don't blame us; blame the law," while admitting the district is at fault for enacting a stupid policy.

Wow lucky teachers, if this had been me or my siblings my dads boots would be playing a game of 32 pickup.
