Byron Community School District #226

Varsity Fields Fertilizing

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 varsity athletic fields at Byron High School will take place on Saturday, June 10, 2023 and Sunday, June 11, 2023 weather permitting. The ditch along the bike path that runs north of Byron Middle School will be fertilized as well.

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 4300.
