Buildings and Grounds

Required Notifications

The East Rochester Union Free School District has implemented an integrated pest management (IPM) program including good housekeeping and sanitation, repair, maintenance, weed control and monitoring. The District uses pesticides only as a last resort when other nontoxic methods of necessary pest control have proven unsuccessful. Even then, the District uses only the least toxic pesticide specific to the pest to be controlled. Only New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) certified pesticide applicators can apply pesticides in school buildings and on school grounds.

As required by state law, the East Rochester Union Free School District maintains a list of those who wish to receive 48-hour written notification of certain pesticide applications at the schools. If you wish to receive notification of pesticide applications scheduled to occur in or around a school building, please call the Director of Facilities at 248-6310 or e-mail at [email protected]. If you are on the list, you must notify the district each year if you wish to continue to be notified. Notification is not required if a school remains unoccupied for a continuous 72-hour period after an application. Also, there are several pesticide applications which are not subject to prior notification. If an emergency application is necessary to protect against an imminent threat to human life, a good-faith effort will be made to provide written notification to those on the 48-hour prior notification list.
