Officials at a Lincoln middle school have placed restrictions on the use of cologne and body sprays, saying heavy use of the odorous sprays is causing problems for students with allergies and asthma.
Administrators at Lux Middle School have restricted application of the scents to the gym locker room. Middle school students change clothes for physical education classes, but they don't shower so the sprays will still be allowed in locker rooms.
Last year, a school in Pennsylvania asked its students to lighten up on the perfumed sprays after a student there suffered an allergic reaction so severe that he had to be hospitalized.
