RCS Pesticide Notification
As required by law, schools that apply certain pesticides on school property must maintain an estimated schedule of pesticide applications and make the schedule available to parents and guardians. RCS is under an Integrated Pest Management Program (IPM). This means that our schools will be inspected quarterly for rodents, insects and other pests in and around the building. The pest management program consists of inspection, monitoring, recommending sanitation and maintenance practices, utilization of non-chemical measures and applications of EPA registered pest control materials, when needed. State law also requires that you be told that the long-term health effects of children from the applications of such pesticides or the class of chemicals to which they belong may not be fully understood.
If you have additional questions, please contact your school office.
