An excerpt from an email set to families with school kids, received from Marianne O'Connor, Superintendent of Schools.

"... We have been notified by the Dept. of Public Health and our local Board of Health that Westborough has been identified as being a high risk community for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). As a precautionary measure, the use of all school , town fields, and playgrounds after sunset is prohibited until further notice. 

Signs are posted at each of the schools to remind the community. All playgrounds and athletic fields will be sprayed on Monday 8/20. Additional information can be found on our website."

UPDATE: here are the three "Pesticide Standard Written Notification" document links, copied from the school's website containing information "for schools, day care programs, and school-age childcare programs":
