Environmental Concerns


CLEANING PRODUCTS: Lebanon School District staff who would like general purpose cleaner to use in their office or classroom should submit a web helpdesk ticket. Staff should remember that the district is required to maintain safety data sheets, and should not bring products from home.

Chemicals from home could react adversely with our chemicals. If you bring a chemical from home, you will be asked to remove it.

INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ): Lebanon School District ensures the safety of all staff and students district-wide by regularly cleaning and maintaining our ventilation and air conditioning filters and coils. We have also started using three-dimensional filter materials in our HVAC equipment, which is treated with an anti-microbial agent. We have minimized the use of dry mops in our cleaning program and have moved to the use of vacuum cleaners with four levels of filtration to eliminate airborne dust. We have also maximized the use of auto scrubbers for the same reason. If staff have air quality concerns, they should inform their building principal and contact Buildings & Grounds at ext. #6732. The use of indoor air fresheners (i.e. glade plug-ins, wax melts, etc.) is prohibited. If you bring these items in, you will be asked to remove them.

FIRE SAFETY AND EVACUATION DRILLS: Lebanon School District works directly with the Lebanon Fire Department to ensure that fire personnel are able to respond efficiently in the event of an emergency. The district also regularly maintains all fire equipment.

RECYCLING & TRASH: Lebanon School District has established a single stream recycling program. Custodial staff will inspect the contents of your recycling and determine if it is clean or contaminated. If it is contaminated, it will be dumped in the trash-collecting bag. District recycling containers should not be utilized for other purposes.

Anything on, around, or near the trash will be disposed of daily. We will provide two trashcans for your classroom; one beside the teacher's desk, and one located by the door (next to the recycling can). The only exceptions will be science and consumer science.

Recycling and trash containers should be visible and located close to the door in each classroom. The custodial staff will empty them regularly. Cans not located near the doorway are liable to be missed by substitute custodians.

Our custodial staff will dispose of items that appear to be trash, that are left in the hallway at the end of the day.

WEATHER RELATED: Lebanon School District Buildings & Grounds staff work diligently to ensure the safety of all staff and students during inclement weather and snow delays. If district staff arrives at work before the parking lot is clear, they should park in an area that has already plowed, even if it is not their assigned parking spot. It is also recommended that staff and students take precautions by wearing appropriate footwear, to avoid accidents and or injury.

The Buildings & Grounds department's typical snow removal procedure is to begin at the High School and Middle School facilities first in order to get them ready to receive students and staff. Elementary facilities are addressed next, followed by other instructional or support facilities.

If schools and offices are closed, please do not report to work as the Buildings & Grounds department is working to make the grounds safe and passable.
