WA Kids Denied Sunscreen Due to School Policy, Get Burned
A Washington State mom wants to change state law after two of her children suffer severe sunburns.
FOX News Radio’s Pam Puso has the story:
Field day at an elementary school turned into a trip to the hospital for two sisters, ages eleven and nine.
(Mother) “One of my daughters has blisters on her nose, little blisters.”
Their mother, furious that officials with the Tacoma school district failed to apply sunscreen. Something they say, a state law prohibits them from doing.
(Mother) “I said ‘Wow, that is remarkable that your staff are not empowered to make a common sense decision about my child’s safety.”
In an effort to get the law changed, the woman is starting a letter-writing campaign to educators and lawmakers.
