The Healthy Schools Act of 2000 requires schools to provide parents/guardians of students and school staff with annual written notification of pesticides use. During the school year, it may be necessary to apply pesticides at your child's school to avoid serious health problems posed by pests or to maintain the integrity of the school buildings and grounds.
The Act also provides parents/guardians and school employees the opportunity to register with the school district if they wish to be notified of individual pesticide applications at their specific school site. Persons who register for this notification will be notified at least 72 hours prior to any application. Please provide registration information, even if you have registered in a prior year.
To register, please send your name, address, student's name and school site to:
Ojai Unified School District
P.O. Box 878
Ojai, CA 93024
