Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Sun Safety for Kids the Sunwise School Program. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Day after day, as school bells echo through the hallways, millions of kids across the nation stream out of their classrooms and into sun-filled school yards, playgrounds, and sports fields. While this is a familiar childhood scene, it also is one that, without proper precautions, could endanger the health of students. Too much exposure to the sun?s ultraviolet (UV) rays can be harmful to anyone?s health?particularly that of a child. In the atmosphere, the ozone layer forms a shield that protects the Earth from the sun?s powerful UV radiation. Scientists have discovered, however, that the ozone layer is thinning and allowing more UV rays to reach the Earth?s surface. Combined with current sun exposure behaviors, the thinning of the ozone layer may increase the chance of overexposure for adults and children. Too much exposure to UV radiation can cause serious health problems such as skin cancer, cataracts, and immune system suppression.
