Integrated Pest Management Public Notification


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 Wednesday, March 27, Thursday, March 28, and Friday, March 28, weather permitting a fertilizer application will be applied to athletic fields at Neuqua Valley High School. 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.

Also please be aware that on Monday, March 25, Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28, 2019, weather permitting, a weed control application will be applied to the mulched areas, courtyards, fenced areas, fence lines, athletic fields, concrete cracks/crevices, Baseball infields and bleacher pads on the Neuqua Valley High School property. This application will be a “Pre-Emergent”. 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.

Sincerely,
Andrew Weed
Facility Manager Neuqua Valley High School
Indian Prairie School District #204
