Alabama Backpack Resolution  

Backpacks are a part of everyday life for most children. An aching back or shoulders, tingling arms, and stooped posture are all symptoms children can experience after using a heavy school backpack. Wearing a backpack the wrong way or with too much weight can cause pain and strain on a childs spine. 


Sunscreen Use at School     

Students will be allowed to possess and use a Federal FDA-regulated over-the-counter sunscreen at school and at school-based events. Any student, parent, or guardian requesting a school board employee to apply sunscreen to a student must present the nurse with a signed Parent Prescriber Authorization Form. The student, parent, or guardian is responsible for providing needed sunscreen.
