Bedbugs found in Laurel Highlands High School


I DON’T THINK ANYBODY REALIZES HOW BAD BEDBUGS ARE? THESE ARE BEDBUGS FOUND INSIDE OF THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS HIGH SCHOOL. THE DISTRICT IS TELLING EVERYONE TO CHECK THEIR CHILDREN AND ANYTHING THAT HAS BEEN IN THE SCHOOL. HERE’S MORE ON THAT STORY FROM CARA SAPIDA. Reporter: ALL AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN CANCELED WE SPOKE TO PARENTS, THERE WERE A LARGE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WHO LEFT EARLY. PHOTOS OF BEDBUGS INSIDE OF LAUREL HIGHLANDS HIGH SCHOOL BEGAN CIRCULATING JUST MINUTES AFTER SCHOOL STARTED. I WAS NOTIFIED THAT THERE WERE BEDBUGS EVERYWHERE. Reporter: TINA CAME TO PICK UP HER GRANDSONS. AT FIRST I THOUGHT THEY WERE EXAGGERATING. BUT THEN I’VE SEEN PICTURES, I CALLED THE SCHOOL AND HE SAID THAT THERE WERE BEDBUGS BUT WE DON’T FEEL THAT SIN AND INFESTATION. WE ONLY FOUND IN THREE CLASSROOMS AND THAT IS NOT IN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT. Reporter: THE SUPERINTENDENT SAID THAT A BEDBUG WAS DISCOVERED ON FRIDAY. A STUDENT WAS A SET HOME. AND THEY ASKED HIM AND SIBLING THERE WERE UNRELATED HAD A HEAD LICE AND A BEDBUG ISSUE. BUT THE DISTRICT IS EXTERMINATING AGAIN. AND THEY PLAN TO TREAT ALL BUILDINGS AND BUSES BEFORE SUNDAY EVENING. THEY ARE BANNING PADS UNTIL MONDAY MORNING. AND ASKING PARENTS TO WASH AND DRY THEM AT HOME. I DON’T WANT MY GRANDSON AND KNEES TO COME BACK TO SCHOOL UNTIL IT IS 100% CLEAN. Reporter: THEY SAID THEY ARE WORKING WITH SEVERAL AGENCIES TO EDUCATE FAMILIES ON WHAT TO DO TO PREVENT BEDBUGS. HOPEFULLY IT DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. REPORTING LIVE CARA SAPIDA,
