Notice of Pesticide Application

Annual Pesticide Notification

Dearborn Heights School District No. 7 has adopted an Integrated Pesticide 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 application to resolve problems.  Pesticide notification information can also be obtained on our website at www.District7.net.

You will receive advanced notice of the application of pesticide, other than bait or gel formulations, at your child's school.  This advanced notice of 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 entrance 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 US mail postmarked at least three (3) days before the application.

If you would like to be notified by mail, please contact John Nicholl, Plant Operations Director, by calling 313-203-3231 or sending an email to nicholjo@dhsd7.net.  Please provide your name, mailing address and what school your child attends.

In an emergency, pesticides may be applied without prior notice, but you will be provided notice following any such application.  You may review the Integrated Pesticide Management program or application records for your child's school by calling Mr. Nicholl at 313-203-3231 or emailing him at nicholjo@dhsd7.net.  This number or email may also be used when school is not in regular session and during the summer months.

Parents may contact Mr. Nicholl with any questions they may have at 313-203-3231 or by emailing nicholjo@dhsd7.net
