EPA Back-To-School With IPM Webinar

August 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

It’s that time of year again and everyone can relate to the annual school supply checklist and the hours spent preparing for the upcoming school year. Notebooks – check. Pencils – check. But, how many school staff, parents or students stop to think about whether the school they will return to is a healthy learning environment—free of pests and unnecessary exposure to pesticides?

Did you know that the classroom environment can seriously affect student and staff health? Exposure to pests and unnecessary pesticides can affect student performance and often lead to school absenteeism. By taking simple steps, you can reduce pests in your learning environment.

This is a new school year, a new beginning! It’s a good opportunity for the School Administrator, facility manager, custodian, teacher, school nurse and others with key roles in the learning environment to embrace school IPM principles. We all look forward to a future where all schools can effectively manage pest management issues through integrated pest management and sustain healthy learning environments.

Space is limited to the first 1,000 to attend. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to join the webinar.
