Annual Notification Concerning Use of Herbicide/Pesticide Services
Pests can sting, bite cause contamination, damage property, and spread disease; therefore, we must prevent and control them. The long-term health effects on children from the application of such pest control materials, or the class of materials to which they belong, may not be fully understood. All pest control materials are chosen and applied according to label directions per Federal law. An estimated schedule of interior pest control inspections and possible treatments is available for review on our website or at each school office.
A similar estimated schedule is available for application of herbicides and other materials to school grounds. Herbicides may be applied by a professional firm and/or district personnel.
Parents of students may request to receive, at their expense, prior notification of any application of a pest control material, should such an application be deemed necessary on a day different from the days specified in the schedule.

Red Wing Schools has a board approved Indoor Air Quality Management Plan. Our IAQ plan is based on the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) ‘Tools for Schools’ indoor air quality program designed specifically for schools. The plan’s goal is to provide indoor air quality that contributes to a favorable learning environment for students, productivity for teachers and staff, as well as an environment that is as healthy as possible. However, the intent of the plan is not to solve all indoor air quality concerns in a school, rather the intent is to provide a road map to assist in managing indoor air quality. For further information youmay contact Kevin Johnson, IAQ Coordinator at 385-4507 or Shanda Jorgensen, Meridian Consulting, at 1- 612-965-5142.
