Health and Safety Management Plans: 2020-2021
Dassel-Cokato School District has implemented several Health and Safety management plans to protect our students and employees. These programs include asbestos management, pesticide maintenance schedule, and indoor air quality monitoring. Each has a management plan that is available for review in the District Office.
Asbestos removal and repair is monitored in district buildings in a proactive manner. Asbestos work always occurs on breaks and during the summer when students are not present in the building.
Dassel-Cokato School District usually applies pesticides monthly and on an as-needed basis, although this is infrequent.
Applications are made during off hours and school breaks whenever possible. This district also applies broadleaf herbicide in the spring, summer, and fall. These applications are made during off hours when there are no people present. In addition, Dassel-Cokato School District has an Indoor Air Quality Management Plan that addresses any indoor air quality concerns that may be reported. Walkthroughs and inspections of the building are performed annually to prevent problems from occurring. If you have any questions about these three safety programs or have an indoor air quality concern, please contact Jeff Powers, Superintendent, 320-286-4100 ext. 1003.
General Notice for Parents and Guardians
2020-2021 School Year Pesticide Notice
A Minnesota state law requires that schools inform parents and guardians if they apply certain pesticides on school property. State law also requires that you be told that the long-term health effects on children from the application of such pesticides or the class of chemicals to which they belong may not be fully understood.
The Dassel-Cokato School District does not apply pesticides on school property unless all other measures have failed to control the problem. In the event that insect control sprays and dusts need to be applied, it will only be done when students are absent from the area, and will be out of the area until any spray and any odor has dissipated.
If you would like to be notified prior to pesticide applications made on days other than those specified in the estimated schedule (excluding emergency applications), please complete and return the form below and mail it to: Jeff Powers, Dassel-Cokato Public Schools, 4852 Reardon Ave. SW, Suite 1700, Cokato, Minnesota, 55321. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact the district office at (320) 286-4100, extension 1000.
As a result of federal legislation (Asbestos Hazard Response Act - AHERA), each primary and secondary school in the nation is required to complete a stringent inspection for asbestos and to develop a plan of management for all asbestos-containing building materials. The Dassel-Cokato schools are in full compliance with this law. As a matter of policy, the Dassel-Cokato schools shall continue to maintain a safe ad healthful environment for our community's youth and employees.
In keeping with this legislation, all buildings owned by the school district were inspected by EPA accredited inspectors. Based on the inspection, the school prepared, and the state approved, a comprehensive management plan for handling the asbestos located within its buildings safely and responsibly. Federal law requires a periodic walk-through (called "surveillance") every six months of each area containing asbestos.
Also, the law requires all buildings to be re-inspected three years after a management plan is in effect. This will be accomplished under the contract by Musser Environmental Consulting.
Short-term workers (outside contractors - i.e. telephone repair workers, electricians, and exterminators) must be provided information regarding the location of asbestos in which they may come in contact. All short-term workers shall contact the lead maintenance person before commencing work to be given this information.
The Dassel-Cokato district office has a list of the location(s) type(s) of asbestos-containing materials found in our school buildings and a description and timetable for their proper management. A copy of the Asbestos Management Plan is available for review in the school office. Questions related to the plan should be directed to the superintendent of schools at (320) 286-4100.
