Reproductive Health - Notice to Parents
The Glenn Board of Education has approved age-appropriate programs in Reproductive Health. By Michigan Law, a lesson is offered on communicable diseases, including, but not limited to, HIV/AIDS in 4th grade. A single lesson is also offered to 4th-grade girls regarding menstruation. Progressively more in-depth lessons are offered at the 5th-grade level. According to the Public Act. 165 (Section 1507 Subsections 3 and 4) revised 2004, parents have the right to review the course content and materials. Parents also have the right to have their child excused, without penalty, from any session(s). If you wish to review materials, please contact the office. Parent notification will be made prior to instruction at each grade level.
Pesticide/Herbicide Application & Asbestos Management
Pesticide, Insecticide, and Herbicide Application: Glenn utilizes an integrated pest management plan. This program is designed to control insects and other pests commonly found in school buildings and associated school grounds. The intent of the program is to manage pests an an acceptable level. Non-chemical methods are used for infestations whenever possible.
Exterior spraying for ants, grubs, or other pests, in conjunction with the application of herbicides to control weeds and plant diseases, is complicated by a licensed contractor. General treatment is made depending on where pests have become a nuisance or where a chronic problem has been identified. Notices will be posted at the main entrance of the facility not less than 48 hours before the application of non-exempt pesticides. In the case of emergency treatment, notifications will be made after the application has occurred.
Parents or guardians may review the school's IPM program records and request prior notification of applications by contacting the Superintendent/Principal's office. If this method is elected by parents or guardians, notice will be sent by mail 3 days prior to applications. In the event of emergency applications, notifications will be made after the application occurs.
Asbestos Management: It is believed that at this time, all remaining asbestos is either non-friable (flaking) or contained in such a manner that it is not a threat to the welfare and safety of our students. If you are concerned about the location of asbestos in the building, the school has a management plan, and it is located in the office. If you have questions, you can contact the office at (269) 512-7970.
For additional pesticide information, call the National Pesticide Center at 1-800-858-7378.
