The Maple Heights City School District Business Office aims to have a safe environment for our students, staff, and families.
In response to the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act requirement, the Maple Heights City School District has established a Wellness Committee comprised of Board of Education Members, parents, students, faculty and staff members, food service personnel, our school nurse, local business partners, and a representative from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and the American Diabetes Association. The Committee’s purpose is to work together to promote healthy lifestyle choices for students, faculty, and staff which include; nutrition education, healthy meal choices, increased physical activity awareness, and other school-based activities designed to promote wellness.

Asbestos Management Plan – Public Notification & Posting
The Maple Heights City School District has developed asbestos management plans for every district-owned building. These plans, which are located in each building, as well as a copy kept with custodial staff, are available for review during normal school hours. The Management Plans detail “response actions” necessary at each building.
To protect the health of students and staff from asbestos in the schools, the AHERA Law (40) CFR Part 763.84 requires that the district appoint a person to be responsible for all asbestos control. This person must ensure that the district abides by all federal, state, and local government requirements regarding asbestos responsibility. Mr. Muata Niamke is responsible in our district and is available to answer questions by calling 587-6100, Ext. 3222 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Plan
The District is committed to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff. The Maple Heights City Schools believes pest control or pest management has evolved from the days of spray applied chemicals as standard practice for pest eradication. Fortunately, we are much smarter today and subscribe to the philosophy and practice of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices. Modern pest management is more than a reaction to a problem; it prevents pests while protecting people.
IPM is a system used to eliminate and prevent the infestation of unwanted pests while de-emphasizing the use of insecticides/pesticides. The integration between good quality housekeeping, exclusion, and non-pesticide procedures is essential to the success of our IPM program. Emphasis is placed on good quality housekeeping, monitoring, and controlling the environment, while insecticides/pesticides are considered only supplements to other techniques. The Maple Heights City Schools prohibit the application of rodenticides, insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides inside and/or around any district-owned building without an approved IPM Plan, including the consent of the IPM Program team.
Mr. Muata Niamke is the person responsible in our district for administering the IPM Program. Mr. Niamke is available to answer questions by calling 587-6100, extension 3222.
