Pesticide Information

Pesticide Notice

We exercise great caution in pesticide or herbicide use in our buildings or grounds.  Should any be required, we comply with the law regarding 48-hour notice to parents and try to do any work on Friday evenings when buildings will be empty for the weekend.  Records of pesticide use are maintained in the Maintenance Department.
 
In keeping with our Integrated Pest Management plan we do not have scheduled times when we spray for pests, it is on a need basis only thereby greatly limiting the hazards associated with pesticides. The need is measured against the hazard the pest is creating.
 

Information for the Contact List

Usually, chemical applications of pesticides or herbicides in the Cheney School District occur when school is not in session. However, on occasion, when other pest controls are ineffective, chemicals are used to prevent the costs and hazards associated with insects, rodents, or noxious weeds. When chemicals are used during school sessions, the treated areas are clearly marked, and notification is posted in each school office.

For prior notice regarding when herbicides/pesticides will be used at your child's school, please contact the M&O department at 559.4948.  Your contact information will be added to the list, and you will be notified in advance of use.

Please note: To ensure that our records are always accurate, you must contact the M&O Department each year to be added to the list.
