Dear Parent, Guardian or Staff Member:                                                                         

Public Acts 91-0099 and 91-0525 mandate Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for Illinois public schools.  IPM manages pest damage with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment; including judicious use of pesticides.  In this context, “pesticide” includes insecticide, herbicide, rodenticide, and fungicide.

IPM provides parents/guardians or staff members with prior notice of herbicide application.  Please be aware that on Monday October 16, 2017, weather permitting, a weed control application will be applied to lower level baseball field, Main courtyards and large circle island at Neuqua Valley High School. The application will be a “Post-Emergent Weed control”. We match herbicide and application procedures to our school environment.  All are approved for school use and are an important part of buildings and grounds maintenance. Typically, this application will not present a health concern to students or staff.  However, it is the intent of IPM to allow those with special sensitivity to take appropriate precautions:  in the case of children, as determined by a parent or guardian. 

If you have further questions, please call my office at (630)428-6005.
