Facility Use Permit Information
If your organization is interested in using school buildings or grounds in the West Islip School District for activities, an Application and Permit for Use of School Buildings or Grounds must be obtained and approved. Below you will find links to guidelines, fees, and regulations. Applications can be downloaded at the left or obtained at District Office at 100 Sherman Avenue.
New York Education Law Section 409-H, effective July 1, 2001, requires all public and nonpublic elementary and secondary schools to provide written notification to all persons in parental relation, faculty, and staff regarding the potential use of pesticides periodically throughout the year.
The West Islip School District is required to maintain a list of persons in parental relation, faculty, and staff who wish to receive 48-hour prior written notification of certain pesticide applications. The following applications are not subject to prior notification requirements:
A school remains unoccupied for a continuous 72-hours following an application;
Nonvolatile rodenticides in tamper resistant bait stations in areas inaccessible to children;
Nonvolatile insecticidal baits in tamper resistant bait stations in areas inaccessible to children;
Silica gels and other nonvolatile ready-to-use pastes, foams, or gels in areas inaccessible to children;
Boric acid and disodium octaborate tetrahydrate;
The application of EPA designated biopesticides;
The application of EPA designated exempt materials under 40CFR152.25;
The use of aerosol products with a directed spray in containers of 18 fluid ounces or less when used to protect individuals from an imminent threat from stinging and biting insects including venomous spiders, bees, wasps and hornets.
In the event of an emergency application necessary to protect against an imminent threat to human health, a good faith effort will be made to supply written notification to those on the 48-hour prior notification list.
If you would like to receive 48-hour prior notification of pesticide applications that are scheduled to occur in your school, please send:
The name of the school building
Your full name
Your day phone number
Your evening phone number
Your e-mail address
To: Mr. James Bosse, West Islip School District pesticide representative at 100 Sherman Avenue, West Islip, NY 11795, Phone number; 893-3200, fax number 893-3216.
Please feel free to contact Mr. Bosse if you have any questions.
