Notification of Pesticide Application

Per state guidelines, some planned applications of pesticides require school districts to notify parents, guardians, and staff members at least 48 hours prior to application. The information provided will include: name or address of the school where pesticide application is occurring, contact information for more details, anticipated date and time of pesticide application, pest(s) being targeted, description of application area, and pesticide(s) to be used.

The link to Pesticide Notification information can be found on the HSE Schools website (hse.k12.in.us) by clicking on "Schools/Staff", then selecting "Facilities Information" from the menu. Active notifications will appear under "Pesticide Herbicide Announcements". If required notification cannot be posted on the Pesticide Notification site at least 48 hours prior to application, a notice with this information will be posted in the "News" section of the HSE website. The information on the website will be provided by the facilities department, and updated as needed. If you do not have access to the HSE Schools website, or have further questions, please contact the HSE Facilities Department at (317)594-4380.

Safe Visitor Badge and Visitors

Anyone wishing to volunteer in the school must have a SafeVisitor ID Badge. Please note this policy also applies to anyone wishing to join students for lunch. Simply follow the quick link on our FCE website to apply for a background check. This process takes 5-7 days.
