District Statement Regarding Bed Bugs, Lice & Roaches

The district sprays both buildings on a regular basis for bed bugs, lice and roaches. In addition, when they're discovered, those areas are immediately treated. When we can identify the child who brings them to school, we work with the board of health and the family to get them assistance in treating their home. I can assure you that while our buildings are well cleaned daily, we remain vigilant in looking for these bugs and are aggressive in our handling of the situation. For more information, click here.
