Monticello School District Annual Notices
Notice for Pesticide Applications
A Minnesota state law requires schools to inform parents and guardians if they apply certain pesticides on school property.
Specifically, this law requires schools that apply these pesticides to maintain an estimated schedule of pesticide applications and to make the schedule available to parents and guardians for review or copying at each school office.
State law also requires that you be told that the long-term health effects on children from the application of such pesticides or the class of chemicals to which they belong may not be fully understood.
If you would like to be notified prior to pesticide applications made on days other than those specified in the estimated schedule (excluding emergency applications), or if you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact: Bruce Hanson at 763-272-3091.
Asbestos - Annual Notification of Availability of the Management Plan and Related Activities
Our district has been inspected for asbestos under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986. Some asbestos containing materials were found in the Monticello Middle School and Pinewood Elementary. There is no known asbestos in the remaining buildings. A management plan detailing the location and description of the asbestos containing building materials has been submitted to the Minnesota Department of Education and is available for your inspection at the Administrative Office and at the respective school offices. The areas containing asbestos materials are in good condition. I.S.D 882 has an ongoing annual project to systematically remove asbestos to further reduce the amount of asbestos in our schools.
As required by federal law, the condition of asbestos in our district is surveyed every six months as part of an ongoing operations and maintenance program. The most recent surveillance was done prior to the July 9, 2018 deadline. At the Middle School some asbestos containing bulletin board mastic, countertops and floor mastic were abated. The asbestos is inspected every three years by a certified asbestos inspector. Our last required inspection was completed prior to the July 9, 2017 deadline. If you have any questions or concerns please address them to our asbestos designated person, Bruce Hanson, Monticello High School, 5225 School Blvd., Monticello, MN 55362.
