Integrated Pest Management

What is IPM?


The California Healthy Schools Act (HSA) is a right-to-know law that provides parents, staff and the community with information about pesticide/herbicide use taking place at public schools and child care centers.

To meet the notification requirements of the HSA, individuals who want to be notified 72 hours before every pesticide/herbicide application must be given the opportunity to register with the school district.  Anyone may opt-in to receive such notification of pesticide/herbicide applications. Click here to sign up for notifications. You can also opt-out if you no longer want to receive notifications.

The opt-in information is provided as part of the Annual Notification of Rights letter distributed to all parents/guardians of MUSD students. Acceptance of this letter is verified annually as a requirement for enrollment in MUSD.
