Pesticide Information

The pesticide Neighbor Notification Law (Section 409-h of the Education Law) has formalized the notification process. The pesticide Neighbor Notification Law, effective July 1, 2001, applies to all public and non-public elementary and secondary schools. Anyone wishing to be placed on the advanced notification list to receive 48 hours written notice of an actual pesticide application should register with the school nurse. This notification will explain the specific date and location of the upcoming pesticide application, the pesticide product name and EPA product registration number, and please contact the Director of Facilities for further information.

Asbestos Information

The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986 is a federal law enacted in 1987 which requires all school districts to reinspect facilities for building materials containing asbestos. Our buildings have been inspected, and response actions are planned to ensure a continued safe environment for our students and employees. Actions include training of maintenance staff to prevent disturbance of asbestos and periodic reinspection and surveillance activities by trained personnel. Details of such activities are described in the District's AHERA Management Plan, which is available for review in the main office at each school building, as well as the facilities administrator's office.
