The school corporation is committed to providing students a safe environment. It seeks to prevent children from being exposed to pest and pesticides. While pesticides protect children from pests that many be found in a school and its surrounding grounds, under some circumstances they may pose a hazard to children. Therefore, pest control practices may involve a variety of chemical and non-chemical methods that are designed to control pests effectively while minimizing potential pesticide exposure to children.

Please contact your school nurse or principal if you would like to have information regarding pest control. Also, please inform your school nurse, in writing, if you want to receive advance notice (at least two school days) when the pesticide application, other than occasional use of household type applications, are to occur.
