Dear Parent/Guardian and Staff of Franklin-McKinley School District: 
In keeping with our school District's commitment to provide your child and staff with a safe and healthy school environment, and to fully comply with the "Healthy Schools Act 2000", we are providing you with the following list of all pesticides which may be used in and around our school facilities. Pesticides are an important tool in our "Integrated Pest Management" Program, and are sometimes necessary to control pests such as ants, spiders, cockroaches, rodents, and termites. Pests are not only a distraction from our educational efforts, but can be a threat to the health and safety of our students and staff, as well as causing damage to our buildings and playgrounds. It is our goal to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment at our school facilities. To that end we have a proactive Pest Management Program in place which involves sanitation, pest monitoring and inspections, exclusion and habitat modification. Before any pesticide is applied, a notice will be posted in the school office 24 hours prior and 72 hours following the application. Applications are done by licensed professionals and District trained personnel, and made after school hours when children are not in class. As we implement and refine our Pest Management Program, you will be notified of any new materials, as the regulations require.

Should you have any questions regarding our policies and procedures, you may contact our Maintenance & Operations Manager, Vanessa Burbach at 408-283-6089 or via e­mail Additional information regarding these pesticides may be found at the Department of Pesticide Regulation's web site at If you would like to register to be notified 24 hours prior to any applications of the following named pesticides, please send a written request to Vanessa Burbach, Franklin-McKinley School District, 645 Wool Creek Drive, San Jose, CA 95112.
