In Nashville, Tennessee students and parents are upset over a bed bug infestation at Jackson County High School. Although the school claims to be taking this issue seriously, many students say the problem has been ongoing.
Marian Pollitt, a senior, stated that every time she comes home she checks each of her belongings furiously for any sign of bed bugs.
Hope Dahlen, a mother of three children who attend the school, claims the school is asking for proof, demanding the students provide evidence of the bed bugs.
Newsletters addressing the problem were sent out by school officials in January, March and April. The Director of Schools claims they are working with the State Health Department to ensure guidelines are followed. They state they have hired a pest control company.
