Bed bugs shut down Pa. school district and parents are biting mad – PennLive

Students in a western Pa. school district are getting an extended weekend due to a bed bug infestation, but parents must check whether their kids are infected.

It is happening in the Clairton City School District in Allegheny County, which closed early Thursday and is shuttered Friday -- all due to bed bugs, as KDKA and WPXI in Pittsburgh report.

The school district is asking parents to inspect their childrens belongs including their backpacks and clothing for the quickly multiplying critters. Parents are being told to keep their kids home if they are infected.

But many parents and some students are biting mad that this is happening at all, as WPXI reports.

The school closure will allow exterminators to come in to spray inside classrooms and common areas. Multiple classrooms and all common areas are affected and will be treated, KDKA says.

Meanwhile, all district classes and after school activities have been canceled Thursday and Friday.

However, the home football game at at Neil C. Brown Stadium will go on as scheduled at 7 p.m.

Right now, the plan is for classes to resume on Monday. But those pesky bed bugs may have other ideas.
