 Annual Integrated Pest Management Notice
 

________________________________________________________________

 

Dear Parent, Guardian, or Staff Member:

 

This notice is being distributed to comply with the New Jersey School Integrated Pest Management Act.  Barrington 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 school’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.

Policy: http://www.straussesmay.com/seportal/Public/DistrictPolicy.aspx?policyid=7422&search=ipm&id=ba9fed582f6e4dd193efb6a7a49b4cbb

The IPM Coordinator for Barrington Board of Education is:

Name of IPM coordinator:        Mr. Samuel Dutkin
Business Phone number:         856-547-8467
Business Address:                   311 Reading Avenue, Barrington, NJ 08007

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 Barrington School District may use pesticides to control pests.  The United States 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. Upon request, additional information is available for review.
