WORKPLACE VIOLENCE PREVENTION STATEMENT
The Valley Stream Union Free School District #30 is committed to the safety and security of our employees. Workplace violence presents a serious occupational safety hazard to our agency, staff, and clients.
Workplace Violence is defined as any physical assault or act of aggressive behavior occurring where a public employee performs any work-related duty in the course of their employment including but not limited to an attempt or threat, whether verbal or physical, to inflict physical injury upon an employee; any intentional display of force which would give an employee reason to fear or expect bodily harm; intentional and wrongful physical contact with a person without their consent that entails some injury; or stalking an employee with the intent of causing fear of material harm to the physical safety and health of such employee when such stalking has arisen through and in the course of employment.
ASBESTOS PLAN NOTICE
The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires school districts to annually inspect and identify asbestos-containing building materials, and to notify those who have access to the buildings of the condition of the asbestos. The latest Asbestos Management Report indicates that all of the buildings are safe and do not contain any friable (loose) asbestos. A copy of this report is on file at the District Central Office as well as in each building for inspection. Please contact the Director of Facilities and Operations with any questions.
SAFETY PLAN NOTICE
Pursuant to the NYS Education Commissioner’s Regulations, the Valley Stream District 30 School Safety Team has completed its annual review of the District-wide School Safety Plan. A copy of the updated plan is available in the main office of each school, as well as in the office of the Assistant Superintendent for Business.
INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT
Educational Law requires that all schools establish a pesticide notification procedure. Part of that procedure includes establishing a registry of names and addresses of people who wish to be notified prior to any application. Although the School District does not regularly use pesticides, there may be an occasion where we have to. If you wish to be placed on the notification registry, please contact the Facilities Office (516-285-9880, extension 225). For additional information, please contact the New York State Education Department website at www.emsc.nysed.gov/facplan.
