at has been fully resolved to the satisfaction of the Department of Education, spokeswoman Marge Feinberg said Monday.
In a statement, Feinberg said that after finding one bedbug in the school’s main office, a sanitation team made a sweep and found no other creepy crawlers in the area.
“The room was inspected last week and no other bedbugs were found,” Feinberg said. “Every time we find a single bedbug, we are required to report it.”
Feinberg said that bedbugs are commonly brought into schools from home by students via backpacks or other belongings.
“Schools are not hospitable environments for bedbugs and are brought in from the outside, usually in a bag or on clothing,” she added.
The Department of Education did not respond to questions about whether other parts of the school were swept in an attempt to locate more of the pests, or if the search was limited to the main office.
