Fenton Area Public School District utilizes an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to control pests. IPM is a pest management system that utilizes all suitable techniques in a total pest management system with the intent of preventing pests from reaching unacceptable levels or to reduce an existing population to an acceptable level.
Pest management techniques emphasize pest exclusion and biological controls. However, as with most pest control programs, pesticides are occasionally applied. You have the right to be informed prior to any application of an insecticide, fungicide, or herbicide made to the school grounds or buildings during the school year.
In certain emergencies, such as an infestation of stinging insects, pesticides may be applied without prior notice to prevent injury to students, but you will be notified following any application.
If you would like prior notification, please contact Mr. Joe Humpert, Operations Department, 3200 Donaldson Drive, Fenton, MI 48430 with the following information:
