Integrated Pest Management Notification

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 a herbicide application. Please be aware that on Thursday August 29, and Friday 30, 2019, weather permitting, a weed control application will applied to the mulched areas, courtyards, islands, fenced areas, fence lines, playground cracks, and crevices and bleacher pads at Neuqua Valley High School and Freshmen campus property. 

Please also be aware that on Thursday, August 29, 2019, weather permitting, a weed control application will be applied to the Varsity and Lower Level Baseball Fields at Neuqua Valley High School property. 

These applications will be a “Post-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.
