Pest control program

The Centennial School District uses a licensed, professional pest control service for the prevention and control of rodents, insects, and other pests in and around district buildings. The program consists of:
1. Inspection and monitoring to determine whether pests are present, and whether treatment is needed;
2. Recommendations for maintenance and sanitation to help eliminate pests without pest control materials;
3. Use of non-chemical measures such as traps, caulking and screening; and
4. Application of Environment Protection Agency registered pest control materials when needed.

Pests can sting, bite, cause contamination, damage property, and spread disease; therefore, the district must work to prevent and control them. The long-term health effects from applications of pest control materials, or the class of materials to which they belong, may not be fully understood. All pest control materials are chosen and applied according to label directions per federal law.

Estimated schedules of pest control (interior and school grounds) inspections and possible treatments are available for review or copying at each school office. Parents may request to receive, at their expense, prior notification of application of pest control material, should such an application be deemed necessary on a day different from the days specified in the schedule.
