Lakewood Public Schools Quality Control Notifications
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Lakewood Public Schools is taking a proactive approach to our indoor air quality at all of our buildings by using monthly walk-through assessments. Observation is made for water incursion and fungal growth as well as for odor detection.
ASBESTOS HAZARD EMERGENCY RESPONSE ACT (AHERA)
All Lakewood Public School buildings are involved in the Lakewood Asbestos Management Plan. This plan calls for the locating and periodic surveillance of the asbestos found in each building. Samples were taken and tested to determine where ACMs are found. Each building has a specific plan, which can be seen at each principal’s office. A complete district plan may be seen at the Superintendent’s Office. An inspection of each building will take place two times each year to determine if any changes in the condition of the asbestos has taken place or if any action is needed to maintain a safe environment.
Any response action planned or completed, other than normal operations and maintenance programs, will be reported each year to comply with our obligation to notify the public regarding the progress of asbestos activity in our schools.
Any operations and maintenance activity required will be performed by trained school staff when school is not in session. Any major project would be done by a professionally licensed and EPA approved contractor.
When new or replacement construction is needed, non-asbestos materials will be used. The new buildings are asbestos free.
As a part of the Lakewood Public School District’s pest management program, our buildings are inspected on a monthly basis by Rose Exterminator Group. When inspection indicates an active pest infestation or conditions conducive to pests, insecticides may be applied to any location on the property with emphasis in the following areas: Boiler room; Break room; Cafeteria; Exterior perimeters; Janitors Closets; Kitchen; Mechanical rooms, Restrooms and Storerooms. These inspections are made on the following monthly schedule: 1st Tuesday of Month at Lakewood HS; 2nd Tuesday of Month at Lakewood MS and Lakewood Early Education Center; 3rd Tuesday of Month at Lakewood Elementary School.
You have the option to be sent a notification on a monthly basis prior to the scheduled inspection/application date for your child’s school. In certain emergencies, pesticides may be applied on an unscheduled day, but you will be provided notice following any such application. If you desire notification, please contact: Lakewood Public Schools, Pesticide Notification, 223 W. Broadway, Woodland, MI 48897, 616.374.7434.
