Webster Elementary School believes the bed bugs are isolated to that family, and the affected classroom and those adjacent to it were cleaned and treated by the school's facilities team and Salt City Pest Control.
As of Wednesday afternoon there have not been any additional bed bug sightings in the school, Henesey said.
The latest finding comes after bed bugs were found in at least two other instances at Henninger High School.
