New York Education Law, Section 409-H, effective July 1, 2001, requires all public and non-public elementary and secondary schools to provide written notification to all parents/guardians, faculty and staff regarding the potential use of pesticides periodically throughout the school year.
The Port Jervis City School District is required to maintain a list of persons (parents/guardians, faculty and staff) who wish to receive 48-hour prior written notification of certain pesticide applications, to include the location applied, date of application, product name and EPA number.
The written request forms are available at the main office of each school or at the Buildings & Grounds Office at 20 Route 209 in Port Jervis. You can also request a form by mail.
Completed forms should be returned to:
Director of Facilities III
