This week we are excited to announce the launch of Micheltorena’s Sun Safety program. We are partnering with USC’s “UV + Me” initiative, and special guests from USC’s School of Dermatology will be coming to Micheltorena early next year to continue this program. As always, the school, the community, and the parents play equally important roles in the health and well-being of our students. Please check your child’s backpack for an important handout you should read and review with your child about ways to be sun safe at school and at home. We are especially at risk here in southern California, and our participation in this program is a step toward a grant we are hoping to apply for next year. The grant, sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology, would give us the funds to erect a shade structure on our campus.
