Students, Parents, Guardians and district patrons of the Washtucna School District

Hi Everyone!

This is to inform you of the School Districts Pesticide Usage Plan on school property for the control of pests.

Each year this letter will be posted on the website and updated as needed as the rules and regulations change regarding pesticide notification and usage.

  1. The District will post at the office and in the main entrance of the school, notification of the intent to use pesticides 48 hours prior to applications inside or on the grounds of District property.
  2. The District will post at all entrances to areas treated, the pesticide name and the pest to be treated, a contact person, phone number, date and time the pesticide was applied.  This notification will remain posted for a period of 24 hours after application is completed.
  3. For EMERGENCY applications, such as wasps or ant infestation the District will make an immediate application for safety reasons and then post as mentioned above leaving the notice up for 24 hours.
  4. The District will provide a list of pesticides used for parent/guardian information upon request. This is located in the District office.
  5. The District will provide a form to fill out to any concerned parent /guardian who wishes to be notified before any planned pesticide applications are made. This will not apply to emergency applications as it must be done right away for safety reasons but will be posted for 24 hours after application.
  6. The District does not list or notify for the use of cleaning products used in everyday cleaning.  Although these are all approved cleaning agents they do kill germs which make them a pesticide.  All cleaning agent labels are read and used in accordance to label information by the District’s employees.
