We have unfortunately become aware of a few isolated incidents in which a bed bug was found in school. Our response was swift and guided by the expertise of a licensed exterminator and a health and safety expert from Nassau BOCES. Our health and safety expert has provided us with information which you may find useful. It includes a School Response Flowchart which outlines exactly what schools should do in the event that a confirmed bed bug is found. We hope this flow chart will reassure you that we have taken every step necessary to maintain pest-free schools. In addition, we are attaching information in English and Spanish for parents to learn more about bed bugs and how to safely stop them. We remain committed to the health and well-being of our students and staff as our number one priority. Should you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child's school building principal.
