Sunscreen/Bug Repellent Policy Reminder
With the hot/humid weather we want to remind parents that they have to supply their child with sunscreen/bug repellent and containers must be labeled with the child’s full name. Our Staff will supervise the application of the sunscreen/bug repellent to all participants following proper application procedures (as outlined on the product container) prior to all outdoor exposure. Thank You for your anticipated cooperation with this policy.
