A mom named Christy Riggs has gone to battle with her daughter's school, because the San Antonio, Texas district has banned sunscreen. Apparently, the North East Independent School District won't allow students to bring block with them to school -- even when they're outside on a field trip -- because it's considered a toxic substance. Yes, really.
School district spokesperson Aubrey Chancellor said allergies are just one of several reasons why they won't allow it, claiming that students may share it, get it in their eyes, and have a serious reaction. Rrrright. But isn't getting sunburned -- even once, very badly, which studies show could double chances of melanoma -- considered a "serious reaction," as well?!
