• Notice of Pesticide Use

    Pesticides are periodically applied to school district property as part of the district’s pest management program.  Parents and legal guardians of children enrolled in the district have the right to request prior notification of pesticide applications to the buildings or grounds.

     In order to be notified prior to the application of pesticides, the parent or legal guardian must request and return a “Pesticide Prior Notification Request Form.”  The form may be obtained from the building principal of your school.

     Please understand that emergencies do arise and that pesticides may be applied without prior notice to parents or legal guardians.  Parents or legal guardians that have requested prior notification, however, will be notified after pesticide application.

     Application of pesticides will be performed only by certified or registered applicators where and when required.  If a pesticide is applied in a building, students will not occupy the room for a minimum of four hours.  At the time of application, a sign will be posted for 48 hours near the building’s primary point of entry.  When a pesticide is applied to school district grounds, the application will not be made within 100 feet of occupied classrooms, and flags will be inserted in the ground to mark the application area.

     This notice was given in compliance with Regulation 637, as amended by Public Act 131 of

    1993.
