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 or pesticide applications. 

Please be aware that on Monday, March 30, Tuesday, March 31, Wednesday, April 1, and Thursday, April 2, 2020, weather permitting, a weed control application will be applied to the mulched areas, courtyards, fenced areas, fence lines, athletic fields, cracks, and crevices 2 Baseball infields and bleacher pads at 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.

Also, please be aware that on Monday, April 6th and Tuesday, April 7th, 2020, weather permitting a fertilizer application will be applied to athletic fields at (Neuqua Valley High School).
