Integrated Pest Management Notice


INDIAN PRAIRIE COMMUNITY UNIT SCHOOL DISTRICT #204
Indian Prairie School District 204
3003 West 103rd Street
Naperville, IL 60564

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 Fertilizer application.  Please be aware that on (Friday April 27), weather permitting a fertilizer application will be applied to Common Areas at (Neuqua Valley High School and Birkett Freshmen Center). This application will be a fertilizer application. We match 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.                                                                  
Sincerely,
Andrew Weed
Facility Manager Neuqua Valley High School
