Fertilizer and Weed Control Application October 9

Community High School District 94 practices Integrated Pest Management to minimize the use of any pesticides on school grounds.

The Structural Pest Control Act (225 ILCS 235/) and the Lawn Care Products Application and Notice Act (415 ILCS 65/) requires public schools to notify parents/guardians and school employees at least 48 hours (two business days) prior to any pesticide applications on school grounds.

The term “pesticide” includes insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides and fungicides. Excluded from the notification requirement are antimicrobials such as disinfectants, sanitizers or deodorizers, insecticide baits and rodenticide baits.

Pesticide application notification can be included in newsletters, bulletins, calendars and/or other correspondence currently published by the District.

On October 9, 2021 Community High School District 94 will be applying the following products, weather permitting:

Shaw’s® Turf Food Crabgrass Control Barricade® 20, 28, 38, 50
