Re: CRANSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS POLICY # 02-8-26 – Integrated Pest Management
The Cranston Public Schools recognizes the importance of Integrated Pest Management by taking an environmentally sensitive approach for preventative as well as responsive practices.
Therefore, it is the policy of the Cranston Public Schools to recognize and treat a potential pest problem with the least amount of chemicals and eliminating the source as part of our in-house program as well as treatments by our licensed pest contractor. All applications are performed after school hours.
In compliance to the State of Rhode Island General Laws 23-25-37, the purpose of this communication is to inform parents, staff, and others of our continuing efforts towards the health and safety of all in regards to Pest Control Management along with the schedule for applications in the food service areas of our school buildings.
A copy of the school “Integrated Pest Management Policy” and the Material Safety Data Sheets for products used may be found in each school office and at the Office of Plant Operations located at 845 Park Avenue.
If you have any questions please contact Joel Zisserson, Director of Plant Operations at 270-8191.
The following are the dates for 2014-2015 school year for treatment to the food service and consumer science areas.
