Illinois law (Lawn Care Products Application and Notification Act) requires all school districts to notify students and staff when lawn care chemicals are being used in or around school facilities.
Please be aware that weed control and fertilization of the front of Byron High School, Byron Middle School, Mary Morgan Elementary School and along the bike path will take place on Saturday, September 30, 2023, and Sunday, October 1, 2023, weather permitting. Fertilizing will be in the highly visible common grounds in the front of each school and along the bike path all around.
Fertilizing of the district varsity athletic fields will also take place on Sunday October 1, 2023.
We are committed to minimizing the use of chemicals for weed control and lawn care, but at times, it is necessary for the proper maintenance of the facility. If you have any questions about the application of the lawn fertilizer, please contact the Director of Buildings and Grounds (815) 234-5491 Ext 267.
