To Whom It May Concern:
The Andover School District is required by Public Act 99-165 to issue a statement of policy regarding the application of pesticides at school and on school grounds. This statement of policy shall be made to all staff and to all parents or guardians of students enrolled in Andover Elementary School at the beginning of the school year.
Alternative methods will be employed prior to using a pesticide. In accordance with Public Act 99-165, whenever it is deemed necessary to apply a pesticide, it will be done so during a period when school is not in session and there are no planned activities on school grounds. All individuals applying pesticides will hold the proper State of Connecticut certificate(s). Children will not be allowed to enter an area where such an application has been made until it is safe to do so according to the provisions on the pesticide label.
Public Act 99-165 also allows for the notification of staff and parents or guardians of students who request advance knowledge of any pesticide applications. Individuals who wish to be notified in advance must fill out the form below and mail it to the address indicated. Notice will be made so as to be received no later than 24 hours prior to the pesticide application.
Questions regarding the Andover School District’s policy for pesticide application may be addressed to Valerie E. Bruneau, Superintendent of Schools, at (860) 742-7339, ext. 304.
I hereby request that I be notified of any pesticide applications as required by Public Act 99-165.
