Safety and Disaster Preparedness
The safety of our students, staff and community is a high priority for the Mountain View School District. We encourage anyone visiting our sites to contact any school office with safety concerns continually. Anything found is corrected as soon as possible.
All of the Mountain View School District school sites participate in fire, earthquake, disaster and active shooter/intruder drills. These procedures are reviewed and updated on an annual basis.
The following plans are required and provided as information for our stakeholders. This information is reviewed and updated on an regular basis, with the year of revision indicated on each plan.
HEALTHY SCHOOLS ACT OF 2000
The Healthy Schools Act of 2000 was signed into law in September 2000 and requires that all schools provide school staff, parents or guardians of students with annual written notification of expected pesticide use on school sites. The notification will identify the active ingredient or ingredients in each pesticide product and will include the CDPR website, where one can find further information on pesticides and their alternatives.
Certain provisions of the law (recordkeeping, written notification, and posting) do not apply to pesticide products used as self-contained baits or traps, gels and pastes used as crack and crevice treatments, and pesticides that are exempt from regulation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA exempts pesticides from regulation if they contain certain active ingredients. These are primarily food grade materials such as mint oil, clove oil, and rosemary oil.
The Mountain View School District is committed to using only legal and appropriate pesticides. These pesticides are applied in the summer, and when students are not present. Parents, guardians and staff may request prior notification of individual pesticide applications of non-exempt pesticides at the school site. If you desire 72-hour notification prior to these treatments, please call (909) 947-2205.
