Each year the Emmett Independent School District requests that the Gem County Mosquito Abatement District (GCMAD) assist in controlling the mosquitoes by spraying the school property. Regular fogging applications to control adult mosquitoes at Shadow Butte Elementary began Thursday, August 16, 2018. Fogging applications are expected up to three times a week. “While the application will have a substantial effect on mosquitoes at the school at the time of application, abatement is not happening on adjacent properties and mosquitoes will re-infest the grounds rapidly,” said Jason Kinley, Director of GCMAD.
Parents and staff are asked to take precautions to protect themselves from being bitten by mosquitoes. Parents may send mosquito repellent and a note giving school staff permission to apply the repellent as the student leaves the building for recess. Students may also protect themselves by wearing long sleeves and pants. It may be a little warm, but much better than being eaten by mosquitoes.
When mosquitoes are the worst, the school will be holding recess indoors and having students line up for buses in the Gym. The infestation of mosquitoes is not expected to go away until we have our first frost.
