Seymour elementary school has bed bugs


School officials say a teacher at Ana LoPresti Elementary School found what turned out to be a bed bug on Tuesday.

The school says it called in its exterminator on Tuesday night to see if there were more bugs. The search turned up empty, but over the past year, students and teach at the school have found several bed bugs. Last December, the school was shut down for a short amount of time leading into the holiday break because of a bed bug problem.

One parent who did not want to appear on camera told Eyewitness News that it's upsetting when you don't know what's going on in the school.

The school says it is sending a notice home with students on Wednesday with information about the bug found this week.  And it assures parents it is aggressively making sure there isn't a bigger problem in the building.
