SCSD confirms bugs found in Henninger High School were bed bugs

Henninger High School

The Syracuse City School District confirmed Friday that three bugs found at Henninger High School Thursday were bed bugs.

That's according to Administrator for Communications Michael Henesey. He says no other bugs have been found and rooms affected have been subjected to cleaning and have been disinfected.

In each of the rooms furniture was cleaned and disinfected, floors were vacuumed, mopped and disinfected again, and all surfaces were cleaned and disinfected, according to Henesey.

All of those steps were communicated to parents by the school's principal, Henesey said.

Henesey said the district is monitoring the situation and communicating with a pest management company to determine if any additional steps are necessary.
