Pesticide Use and Notification Registry


During the non-winter months lawn pesticide use is a normal activity at Marion Community Schools to provide fertilization and weed control to lawns surrounding our buildings as well as our athletic fields.  The chemicals used to treat these areas are the same as is used in residential lawn care.  In almost all cases, the treatments of lawns will take place in the evenings or on weekends after the students have left to insure that students will not walk through treated areas for a minimum of 4 hours after treatment.  The school building affected will be notified of the planned treatment a minimum of 48 hours prior to the treatment. 

If you would like to be provided with this notification, please contact your building principal to be placed on the notification list.
