Pesticide Application 6/14/18 -- now 6/19/18



Integrated pest/weed management procedures such as inspections and monitoring are used to identify conditions contributing to pest/weed problems and to determine when to control pests/weeds. One or more control methods that would be used as a first response include sanitation, structural repair, and other nonchemical methods. If it is determined that nontoxic options are unreasonable or have been exhausted, the use of a pesticide may be utilized to control the pest problem.


This is a notice to inform you that a pesticide will be applied at the Stanfield School District grounds for control dandelions and clover. If unfavorable weather conditions or other extenuating circumstances arise, the intended pesticide application may have to be delayed or postponed to a later date. If the application cannot be made within 14 days of the original planned date, a new notice will be issued. We are planning to spray Thursday, June 14, 2018, beginning at 8:00am. (More information can be found on our Pesticide Application Notification Form.)


A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is a document that contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product. You may view the MSDS the pesticide, Speed Zone.


The Office of Pesticide Programs of the United States Environmental Protection Agency has state: Where possible, persons who potentially are more sensitive, such as pregnant women and infants (less than two years old), should avoid any unnecessary pesticide exposure.


Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Stanfield School District Office at 541-449-8766.

2017 Tax Exemption for Parents of Children with Disabilities

The Oregon Tax Code provides an additional tax exemption for parents of eligible children with disabilities in Oregon.  The procedure for claiming an exemption for the 2017 tax year is explained in the Oregon Individual Income Tax Return and Instruction booklets.

Who qualifies for the exemption?

A child qualifies if he or she meets all of the following criteria:

  • Qualifies as a dependent of the parent(s) for tax year 2017;
  • Is eligible for early intervention services (birth to age 3), early childhood special education services (ages 3 to 5) or receives special education as defined by the State Board of Education of the state where the child attends school; and,
  • Is considered to have a disability as of December 31, 2017 under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and related Oregon laws.

What documentation must be submitted with the tax return to qualify for this exemption?

As the tax instruction booklet indicates, the child must have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), as well as a current eligibility statement as a student with a disability.  If you do not have these documents contact your District for a copy of the IEP/IFSP cover sheet, and eligibility statement.  Copies of the IEP/IFSP cover sheet and eligibility statement are not required to be submitted with the tax return.  However, parents are advised to retain a copy with their 2017 tax records as the Oregon Department of Revenue may ask the parents to provide such documentation.  The link to the Tax Exemption Memo for Parents of Children with Disabilities, in Spanish is listed below.  If you have any Special Education related questions, please contact Jeremy Wells at the Oregon Department of Education, Office of Student Services, at 503-947-5782.
