Information about Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a nuisance, but they are not known to cause or spread disease. They are usually active at night when they feed on blood. The bite is initially painless, but it may become swollen and itch, much like a mosquito bite. If you have concerns for you or your child, you should call your physician. We do not send home a child if a bed bug is found on them. We check for bug bites, additional bed bugs, and their school items are placed in double black garbage bags to sit outside until after school.  We also notify parents of the discovery of the bed bug.

The source of bed bugs often cannot be determined, as they may be found in many places, including hotels, airplanes, buses, hospitals, department stores and movie theaters.  Finding a bed bug does not mean that our school buildings or buses are infested. Bed bugs are often unknowingly brought into the school by building occupants and as a result, we may have future sightings.

Even though it is unlikely for bed bugs to reproduce and spread in schools, we will continue to work to identify pests, provide thorough inspections of our school buildings and buses and have licensed pest control specialists treat areas as appropriate. If you have experienced them in your home, we strongly recommend that you seek assistance from a qualified pest control.
