Integrated Pest Management Notification

INDIAN PRAIRIE COMMUNITY UNIT SCHOOL DISTRICT #204
Indian Prairie School District 204
1250 Shore Rd
Naperville, IL 60563

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 application. Please be aware that on Monday November 23rd, Wednesday December 2nd, and Thursday December 3rd 2020, weather permitting, a weed control application will 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.

If you have further questions, please call my office at (630)428-6005.
Sincerely,
Sean Jones
Facility Manager Neuqua Valley High School
Indian Prairie School District #204
