Hartland Consolidated Schools


Pest Management Program

ADVISORY TO ALL PARENTS

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Hartland Consolidated Schools has adopted an Integrated Pest Management program. Inherent with this are the District’s efforts to reduce pesticide use as much as possible. While it may occasionally be necessary to apply a pesticide, these will only be used as a last resort. This program does not rely on routine pesticide applications to resolve problems.  We use various techniques such as habitat alteration, sanitation, mechanical means, exclusion, etc. to prevent pest from becoming a problem.

You will receive advanced notice of the application of a pesticide, other than bait or gel formulations at your child's school.  This advance notice of the application will be given 48 hours before the application.  The law requires us to do this notification by using two methods.  The first method required by the law is the posting at the primary entrances to your child's school. The entrances that will be posted are those entrances that have a sidewalk that leads directly to a parking lot. The second method we are going to use is the posting in a common area located by the main office of the school.  Parents are also entitled to receive this notice by first-class United States mail postmarked at least 3 days before the application.  If you would like to be notified by mail please contact the Operations Department at (810) 626-2185.   Please give the office your name, mailing address and what school your child attends.

In an emergency (for example, bees nest), pesticides may be applied without prior notice, but you will be provided notice following any such application. 

You may review our IPM program or pesticide application records for your child’s school by calling or e-mailing Matt Marino the District’s Director of Operations at (810) 626-2185 e-mail at mattmarino@hartlandschools.us. This number or e-mail may also be used when school is not in regular session. 

Sincerely,
Matt Marino
Director of Operations

Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) Notification 2019

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that each year, district workers and building occupants receive notification about asbestos activities such as response actions and inspections.  The purpose of this correspondence is to meet those requirements and familiarize you with the asbestos related activities that have been conducted in Hartland Consolidated Schools during the last year.

Management Plans

In 1988, Hartland Consolidated Schools contracted with Trust Thermal Systems, to conduct inspections for asbestos containing material (ACM) within all district owned buildings.  These Management Plans are available for review in the administrative office of each building.  An electronic copy of each building management plan is also located in the Maintenance and Operations office.

Surveillance Activities 

The AHERA regulation requires surveillance of the condition of ACM every six months and Reinspections every three years.  The Three-Year Reinspection within each of our buildings was conducted in December of 2018.  The next Reinspection will be conducted in November of 2021. The last periodic surveillance was conducted in May of 2019.  All of these surveillance activities will be included as part of the building’s Management Plans.
 

Asbestos Abatement 

During the past year there were minor abatement at various buildings in the district.  All documentation regarding past and future asbestos abatement projects are available to be viewed electronically, for access please contact the designated person at the Maintenance and Operations Office.  Air tests will be conducted throughout all phases of the future asbestos removal projects at each building.  The air samples will be collected and analyzed in accordance with all regulatory agency requirements.
