Use of Facilities
It is the policy of the Medina Central School District to encourage the greatest use of school buildings for community-wide organizations.
Groups wishing to use Medina facilities must first secure permission from the Building Principal via the Use of Facilities form and abide by the rules and regulations established for such use. Please contact the building for availability. All gym use is coordinated by the Athletic Office; please call 585-798-2710 for assistance.
New York State Education Law Section 409-H requires all public and non-public elementary and secondary schools to provide written notification to all persons in parental relation, faculty and staff regarding the potential use of pesticides throughout the school year.
The Medina Central School District is required to maintain a list of persons in parental relation, faculty, and staff who wish to receive 48-hour written notification of certain pesticide applications. The following pesticide applications are not subject to prior notification requirements:
- A school remains unoccupied for a continuous 72-hours, following application;
- Anti-microbial products;
- 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 notification list.
If you would like to receive 48-hour prior notification of pesticide applications that are scheduled to occur in your school, please contact Gerhard Leuer, Director of Buildings and Grounds at585-798-3221.
Federal regulations require all public school districts to inspect all known asbestos containing building materials at least once every six months and to inform employees and other building occupants of activities involving asbestos containing building materials which have occurred in the past year.
Every three years, all asbestos material must be reevaluated as part of the inspection process. As always, the health and safety of students, staff and parents remain a primary concern. The Asbestos Management Plans are available for review by appointment, during regular business hours by contacting Gerhard Leuer, Director of Buildings and Grounds at 585-798-3221.
