Sabattus Primary School Closed Due to Bedbugs

Sabattus - The Sabattus Primary School in Maine is closed because bedbugs were discovered in two classrooms.
Sabattus Superintendent James Hodgkin says the bedbugs were isolated to the two classrooms in the kindergarten through grade 2 building. Hodgkin says a pest control company was brought in Monday to check the building after a parent came Friday to ask about bites on their child's arm.

School maintenance workers cleaned the rooms, but they will remain closed until after a pest control company treats them on Wednesday.

Hodgkin called the outbreak "pretty isolated," but officials decided to cancel school until the issue can be taken care of. (AP)
