Byron Community School District #226

Public Notice

Fertilizer Image


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 lawns at Byron Middle School and the grounds directly east of Byron High School (Junior tackle practice fields) will take place on Saturday, May 7, 2022.  Weed control and fertilization of the lawns at Byron High School, Mary Morgan Elementary School and the athletic fields behind Byron High School will take place on Sunday, May 8, 2022.

In the event of poor weather, I will send out another notification with the make-up dates.

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.
