Clothing can be a convenient and effective sunscreen. It blocks UVA and UVB. It doesn’t wash or wear off like sunscreen, so its protection can last all day.

Encourage students and staff in your district to use sun protective hats, clothing and sunglasses. Consider modifying existing dress codes or uniforms to make them more sun safe. Ask teachers or student leaders to set good examples by wearing hats and sunglasses. Schools can also sell sun protective hats, clothing and sunglasses with their school logos on them.

Be sure to send literature home to parents about your district’s sun safe clothing policy and the role parents should play in sun safety.
