Pesticide/Asbestos Notification

  • Pesticide Notification

         New York State Education Law and the Commissioner of the State Education Department have adopted a pesticide notification requirement in schools effective July 1, 2001.  The law requires all public and private schools to provide written notification to all persons who wish to receive 48-hour written notification of certain pesticide applications.

         If an emergency application is necessary to protect against an imminent threat to human health, a good faith effort will be made to supply written notification to those on the notification list.  To receive 48-hour notification, you must register with the school district by contacting the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, who serves as the school district's pesticide representative.

         West Seneca's Central School District's representative for this notice is Mr. Joseph Farr who may be reached at (716) 677-3684 or by fax at (716) 674-0152.


    Asbestos Notification

         In accordance with the requirements of the federal regulation known as AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act), the West Seneca Central School District has conducted inspections and developed management plans for each of the district's schools.  These management plans are available for your review during regular business hours at the individual schools.  Included in these management plans is information regarding AHERA inspections, operations and maintenance, period surveillance and response action activities.

         It is the intention of the West Seneca School District to comply with all federal and state regulations controlling asbestos and to take the appropriate steps necessary to ensure students and employees have a healthy and safe environment in which to learn and work.  For information contact Mr. Joseph Farr who may be reached at (716) 677-3684 or by fax at (716) 674-0152.
