WPFO FOX23 in Maine reports that bed bugs were found in two classrooms at Sabattus Primary School (Sabattus, Maine) after several parents called to alert administrators to suspected bed bug bites on their children.
The classrooms have already been cleaned by maintenance crews, and a pest control company will now come in to exterminate.
The decision to close the school came from the district level as a precaution.
WABI reports the problem was isolated to the K-2 building, and that the school will be treated today (Wednesday) and then reopened.
Hopefully the school will also do something to educate parents and staff about how to detect bed bugs in their homes, and, if necessary, how to get rid of them?
The bed bugs in the school came from somewhere, and they may have gone from the school to still other locations.
