Hello Parents!

We’re excited to announce that Spring Creek High School is joining dozens of other schools across Nevada in becoming a Sun Smart School!

What this means is that your student(s) will be learning why it’s important for them to protect their skin from receiving too much sun when they’re outside. They’ll also learn how to protect themselves while they’re enjoying the great outdoors in our beautiful state.

This is important because:

• Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States – 1 in every 5 people will be

   diagnosed with some form of skin cancer

• Skin cancer is primarily caused by too much exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet (UV) rays, or by

    use of tanning devices

• Sunburn in childhood is a major risk factor for melanoma, the deadliest kind of skin cancer

• Melanoma has become the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in young people

    ages 15 – 29

            • We want our students and staff to be Sun Smart and Sun Safe!

Being part of a Sun Smart School means that your student will have access to sunscreen here at school. We’ve installed automatic sunscreen dispensers. Teachers and staff will be encouraging students to apply sunscreen before they go outside for P.E., recess and after-school sports.

The sunscreen is primarily mineral-based and is safe for use by students of all ages. A complete list of school-provided ingredients is available in the Health Office. If you prefer your student(s) not use the school-provided sunscreen, please let us know, and send them instead with a sunscreen of your choice for their personal use.

Help your student(s) be Sun Smart by learning and practicing the 5 S’s of sun safety:

            SLIP on sun protective clothing.

SLOP on broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen.

SLAP on a wide-brimmed hat.

SEEK shade or shelter.

SLIDE on UV protective sunglasses.


 Thank you!
