General pesticide notice for parents for guardians
A Minnesota State law went into effect in the year 2000 that 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, contact Dr. Melissa Radeke, Superintendent, at (320) 395-2521, Lester Prairie Schools, 131 Hickory St. N., Lester Prairie, MN 55354.
