Township High School District 113 has a long tradition of maintaining a safe and clean environment for its students and staff. Our facility is regulated and visited frequently by the State of Illinois Regional Office of Education and the Lake County Board of Health.
At certain times during the year we do apply pesticides as part of the maintenance of our physical education and athletic fields. On occasion, we also do spot applications of pesticides inside the building, such as in the case of a bee’s nest or a minor ant problem. Regular spraying is not part of our procedure. Our applicators are state certified and all applications are made during unoccupied times, either late evening or early morning.
Any parent, guardian, student or staff member wishing to receive written notification of any pesticide application should contact the Director of Facilitie Management.
