Dear Parents and Stakeholders of BISD:
Bastrop ISD has a policy that requires us to follow integrated pest management (IPM) procedures to control pests on school grounds. This district strives to use the safest, effective methods to manage pests, including a variety of non-chemical control measures; however pesticide use is sometimes necessary to maintain adequate pest control and assure a safe, pest-free school environment.
All pesticides used in our district are registered for their intended use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and are applied only be certified pesticide applicators. Prior to indoor applications, signs will be posted 48 hours in advance of treatment. All outdoor applications will be posted at the time of treatment and signs will remain until it is safe to enter the area.
Parents with further questions, or who wish to be notified directly about upcoming pesticide applications on their children’s campus, can contact the District Maintenance Director at (512) 321-7307
