Annual Integrated Pest Management Notice, 2016 – 2017 School Year
August 15, 2016
Dear Parent, Guardian, or Staff Member:
This notice is being distributed to comply with the New Jersey School Integrated Pest Management Act. The Montclair Board of Education has adopted an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policy and has implemented an IPM Plan to comply with this law. IPM is a holistic, preventive approach to managing pests that is explained further in the District’s IPM Policy included with this notice.
All schools in New Jersey are required to have an Integrated Pest Management Coordinator (IPM Coordinator) to oversee all activities related to IPM and pesticide use at the school.
Name of IPM Coordinator for Montclair High School: Mr. Brian Bunk, Head Custodian
Telephone Number: 973-509-4100
Name of IPM Coordinator for George Inness Annex: Mr. Kristoffer Moser, Head Custodian
Telephone Number: 973-509-4004
Name of IPM Coordinator for Woodman Field: Mr. Troy Shannon, Head Custodian
Telephone Number: 973-509-4044
Name of District IPM Coordinator: Mr. Leonard Saponara, Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds
Business Phone number: 973-509-4044
Business Address: Buildings and Grounds Department, c/o Hillside School, 54 Orange Road, Montclair, New Jersey, 07042
The IPM Coordinator maintains the pesticide product label, and the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) (when one is available), of each pesticide product that may be used on school property. The label and the MSDS are available for review by a parent, guardian, staff member, or student attending the school. Also, the IPM Coordinator is available to parents, guardians, and staff members for information and to discuss comments about IPM activities and pesticide use at the school.
As part of a school pest management plan the Montclair Board of Education may use pesticides to control pests. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) register pesticides to determine that the use of a pesticide in accordance with instructions printed on the label does not pose an unreasonable risk to human health and the environment. Nevertheless, the EPA and the DEP cannot guarantee that registered pesticides do not pose any risk to human health, thus unnecessary exposure to pesticides should be avoided. The EPA has issued the statement that where possible, persons who are potentially sensitive, such as pregnant women, infants and children, should avoid unnecessary pesticide exposure.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 973-509-4044.
