& INFORMATION ABOUT BED BUGS

 

10/28/15

 

Dear Parent or Guardian:

 

We recently found a bed bug in an 8th grade classroom.  Bed bugs are a nuisance, but their bites are not known to spread disease.  Bed bugs are usually active at night and feed on human blood.  The bite does not hurt at first, but it may become swollen and itch, much like a mosquito bite.  Watch for clusters of bites, usually in a line, on exposed areas of the body.  If you have concerns for you or your child, please contact your doctor.

 

The source of bed bugs often cannot be determined, as bed bugs may be found in many places including hotels, planes, and movie theaters.  Even though it is unlikely for bed bugs to be spread in Schools, Citizens Leadership Academy will conduct an inspection and, if needed, will treat the area where the bed bug was found.

 

Citizens Leadership Academy will continue to work to identify bed bugs, provide thorough inspections of Schools, and have licensed pest control specialists treat the rooms if a problem is found.

 

Contact your physician for proper care and treatment of bed bug bites.

 

If you have any questions regarding bed bugs in your child’s classroom, please contact me.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Davis Karousis
