Pesticide and asbestos notifications
New York State Education Law Section 409-H, effective July 1, 2001, requires all public elementary and secondary schools to provide written notification to all persons in parental relation, faculty, and staff regarding the potential use of pesticides periodically throughout the school year.
The Lake George Central School District is required to maintain a list of persons in parental relation, faculty, and staff who wish to receive 48-hour prior written notification of certain pesticide
applications. If you wish to be placed on this list, please contact the Director of Facilities at 518-668-5452 Ext. 1219.
The following applications are not subject to prior notification requirements
- A school remains unoccupied for a continuous 72 hours following an application
- Antimicrobial products
- Nonvolatile rodenticides in tamper resistant bait stations in areas inaccessible to
- Silica gels and other non-volatile ready-to-use pastes, foams, and gels in areas
inaccessible to children
- Boric acid and disodium octaborate tetrahydrate
- The application of EPA designated biopesticides
- The application of EPA designated exempt materials under 40CFR152.25
- The use of aerosol products with a directed spray in container of 18 fluid ounces or less
when used to protect individuals from an imminent threat from stinging and biting
insects including venomous spiders, bees, wasps and hornets
- In the event of an emergency application necessary to protect against imminent threat
to human health, a good faith effort will be made to supply written notification to
those on the 48-hour prior notification list.
The Lake George Central School District has submitted information regarding asbestos containing building materials in the school district to the New York State Education Department.
This information is documented in the school district’s Asbestos Management Plan, which is in compliance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1987 (40 CFR Part 763). This memorandum is intended to fulfill the annual notification requirements.
Under the AHERA Regulation the school district is required to perform re-inspections on all facilities which contain asbestos-containing construction materials once every three years.
Documentation related to the re-inspection is available in the Asbestos Management Plan. The AHERA regulations further require that periodic surveillances of the same asbestos containing
materials be performed twice a year. These inspections have been, and continue to be, performed and records of the surveillances are also with the Asbestos Management Plan.
The Asbestos Management Plan for Lake George Central School is available to the public for review during the following time period. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Integrated Pest Management Information
The intent of the law is to require schools and day care centers to manage grounds and pests without pesticides. Emergency determinations should only be sought or granted for a one-time pesticide application for a specific situation, which presents a true emergency. To provide guidance on deciding when a situation is not an emergency, the DEC, State DOH and SED, in consultation with OCFS, identified the following situations that these state agencies generally would not consider to warrant an emergency pesticide application determination:
- when the problem can be managed with the allowed products and/or alternative pest management methods (even when it takes time to learn and fully practice pesticide alternatives).
- for routine or repetitive pest problems. Pest problems can occur on a regular or seasonal basis, but they do not usually rise to the level of a public health or environmental threat that constitutes an emergency.
- when the pesticide application would be for purely aesthetic (non-emergency) reasons.
