Pesticide Notification - The Pesticide Notification Act requires all Pennsylvania schools to notify parents, employees, and students when pesticide applications will occur on school grounds. Please note that the district has scheduled pesticide applications to the District's lawns at the school buildings and fields for the weekends of May 17 and 18 or May 25 and 25, 2013, weather permitting. The Pesticide Notification Act prohibits pesticide application when students and staff will be present in the affected school buildings. Non-toxic or less-toxic pesticides will be used only on an as-needed basis. Pesticides will be applied in an enclosed trap or on a spot treatment basis whenever possible and will be targeted to a specific pest. State law allows pesticide application in schools only by certified applicators, registered technicians, or technicians under the direct supervision of a certified applicator. If you should have any questions or concerns on the Program, please contact the Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds, Mr. Cesareo Sanchez, at 724-274-2107.
