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, September 26, 2019, weather permitting, a weed control application will be applied to the mulched areas, courtyards, playground, tree rings, fenced areas, fence lines, athletic fields, cracks and crevices and bleacher pads at Neuqua Valley High School and Freshmen campus property. This application 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.

Neuqua Valley Theatre Presents: "Snow White"

Neuqua Valley High School is excited to perform this year's children's show production of "Snow White". This family-friendly show will have audience members entertained and thoroughly delighted they attended. The show is approximately one hour, interactive, and comedic production will entertain audiences of all ages.

The Witch was the fairest one of all first, and she will not be silenced any longer! This updated version of the classic story unveils the villain's perspective, from her tragic childhood to her quest for revenge. So how did the story really go? Join all seven quirky dwarves, a tongue-tied prince, a sassy mirror, a dancing chicken, and of course Snow White, in a tale about beauty, friendship, and happily-ever-afters with a twist.

Patrons may purchase a Character Tea Party ticket for Saturday, October 12th at 2:00pm. If planning to attend, purchasing tickets ahead of time is required due to the limited quantity available. Parent supervision also required for those that attend the Tea Party.

Changes to AP Exam Registration for 2019-2020

As the school year begins and students settle into classes, we want to remind you of some changes from the College Board related to Advanced Placement examinations. Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, the College Board has shifted the timeline for Advanced Placement exam registration and payment. The cost of exams ($98) has not changed, but the regular registration window has moved to the fall. The College Board is now asking students to register for exams between September 23 and November 1, 2019. Advanced Placement exams will be given between May 5-8 and May 11-15, 2020.

Students who register after November 1, 2019 for an Advanced Placement exam will be charged a $40 late registration fee by the College Board. Late registration is possible from November 2 through March 1. Be on the lookout for information from your teacher(s) and your school with additional details on how to register for your Advanced Placement exams.
