Pest Management And Lawn Care Application Notice Acts

The Facilities Management Team at Township High School District 113 is committed to providing a safe environment for the community, staff and students in our care. We seek to prevent exposure to pests and pesticides and, therefore, have adopted the State of Illinois Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to pest control and compliance with the Illinois Lawn Care Products Application and Notice Act. The IPM approach minimizes the exposure of our community, staff and students to pesticides and includes a variety of non-chemical and chemical methods to prevent and eradicate pests.

Township High School District 113 assumes the responsibility of notifying our community, staff and students of any upcoming pest and pesticide treatments. The Illinois Structural Pest Control Act, the Illinois Child Care Act, and the Illinois Lawn Care Products Application and Notice Act require prior notification to requestors when pesticide application is scheduled for use. To those who wish to receive said notification prior to any application, please notify Barry Bolek by e-mail at: bbolek@dist113.org or by regular mail to: Township High School District 113, ATTN: Ginette Piagentini, Facilities Management, 1040 Park Avenue West, Highland Park, IL 60035. All applicable rules and regulations regarding notification will be adhered to.
