What do you think of the school finding bed bugs in a 4th grade classroom

I received this email:As you may be aware, late Tuesday afternoon a bug was found in a fourth grade classroom. At that time, the bug was contained for identification. As a precaution, the classroom was cleaned thoroughly that evening. On Wednesday afternoon another bug was found in the same classroom. That one was also contained. We immediately contacted our professional exterminating contractor. The exterminator was here today by 9:15 AM and in their opinion the two bugs are bed bugs. We have also been in communication with the Monmouth County Board of Health who will be taking the bugs to Rutgers University for further identification. We are working in conjunction with the Board of Health to assure the correct steps continue to be taken to address this issue.

There has been a rumor that additional bugs have been found in other locations within the school. That is completely false.

In the meantime we have taken the following actions:

The room has been thoroughly cleaned
The students have been relocated
Students personal belongings have been bagged
Students were checked for any indications of bites
Exterminator has been contacted
Exterminator has inspected the room and found no evidence of any additional bugs
The rooms are being prepared for treatment
A treatment will be performed on the classroom and, as a precaution, the adjacent classroom.
A follow up inspection has been planned

If you have any questions, please contact the office.
