Mom doesn't sunscreen kids, blames school for their burns6/21/2012
Jesse Michener didn't put sunscreen on her daughters before their school's outdoor field day, despite their sleeveless shirts. The girls came home with "severe" sunburns and, of course, Michener blames the school. The Tacoma (Wash.) School District doesn't allow teachers to slather SPF on the students and, to protect kids with allergies, those who carry it need a doctor's note. Michener takes responsibility for her rotisseried kids, but says the teachers should've pulled them inside or called her to put sunscreen on them once they saw the girls were starting to burn. Granted, residents of often-overcast Washington may not understand the power of that fiery gas ball in the sky, but this time we're placing all the blame on Michener's (un-burned) shoulders.
Does the school share any responsibility?
