Indoor Air Quality Notification
2014-2015 School Year

The JWP School District would like to take this opportunity to inform parents and employees of the District’s commitment to achieving and maintaining a healthy Indoor Air Quality environment for all students, staff and other building occupants.

The District has implemented an Indoor Air Quality Management Plan. This involves performing annual building walkthroughs, IAQ investigations for problem areas, ventilation checklists for mechanical equipment, staff IAQ checklists, and the development of policies related to Indoor Air Quality. The District utilizes the EPA’s “Indoor Air Quality – Tools For Schools” guide to help accomplish these tasks.

If you have any questions or concerns about indoor air quality, please contact the District Office at (507) 234-5181.

Pesticide Notification
General Notice for Parents or Guardians
2014 – 2015 School Year

JWP Public Schools may use pest control materials during the school year.

Should the need occur this school year, we may use an insecticide to clean up the area.  The district may use chemicals for weed control and turf management.  The determination will be made about the dates and chemicals to be used in conjunction with a licensed applicator during the growing season.  Notification will be posted on the district website and at the building one week prior to application.

Parents of students may request to receive at their expense, prior notification of any application of a pest control material and schedule, should such an application be deemed necessary.

Please contact the District Office to request notification at (507) 234-5181.
