Parents and students upset about reported cockroaches at Norfolk school


(TOM) SOME NORFOLK PARENTS ARE UPSET – FRANKLY DISGUSTED AFTER THEY SAY THEIR CHILDREN FOUND COCKROACHES AT THEIR HIGH SCHOOL. (ANITA) THIS COMES JUST TWO WEEKS AFTER BED BUGS WERE FOUND AT THE SAME SCHOOL. AND PARENTS HAVE HAD ENOUGH. 10 ON YOUR SIDE’S LAURA CASO IS HERE WITH MORE. (LAURA) NOT ONLY DO PARENTS TELL ME THEY’VE HAD ENOUGH BUT STUDENTS TOO. (LAURA) WE’VE RECEIVED SEVERAL EMAILS, CALLS AND PICTURES ABOUT THE LATEST ROUND OF THE CREEPY CRAWLERS AT LAKE TAYLOR HIGH SCHOOL IN NORFOLK. I SPOKE WITH FOUR STUDENTS TODAY. ONE SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE BUGS. THE OTHER THREE SAID THEY’VE SEEN COCKROACHES IN THE SCHOOL AND ONE WON’T EVEN BRING HIS BAG HOME WITH HIM. PARENT BONNIE WOOD’S REACTION THIS PICTURE SHOWED TO HER BY HER SON. A PICTURE CIRCULATING ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND SENT TO 10 ON YOUR SIDE – OF ROACHES – REPORTEDLY IN THE BATHROOM AT LAKE TAYLOR HIGH SCHOOL. BONNIE WOOD/PARENT “IT’S GROSS, WE HAD BED BUGS RIGHT BEFORE SPRING BREAK TWO WEEKS AGO.” EARLY THIS MONTH – THE SCHOOL DISTRICT CONFIRMED BED BUGS WERE FOUND AND TOLD 10 ON YOUR SIDE PEST CONTROL SERVICES WERE IN THE SCHOOL DURING SPRING BREAK. BUT ANOTHER CREEPY CRAWLY HAS REPORTEDLY MADE ITS HOME IN THE SCHOOL. BONNIE WOOD/PARENT “NOW THE COCKROACHES, SINCE HE’S BEEN IS ANOTHER ISSUE THERE.” HER SON LEAVES HIS BACKPACK IN THE CAR FOR FEAR OF BRINGING BUG’S HOME. ROBBIN FARMER’S TWO CHILDREN GO TO LAKE TAYLOR. ROBBIN FARMER/PARENT “WHEN THEY HAVE TO COME HOME AND I HAVE SEARCH THEIR STUFF BECAUSE I’M SCARED BECAUSE THEY MAY BRING THEM HOME, SO IT’S A LITTLE OVERWHELMING AS A PARENT.” THE SCHOOL REACHED OUT TO PARENTS ABOUT THE BED BUGS, BUT NOT ABOUT THE ROACHES. AND PARENTS ARE WONDERING WHY? BONNIE WOOD/PARENT “WHAT’S YOUR MESSAGE TO THE DISTRICT? DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, FIX THE ISSUE INSTEAD OF PUTTING OUR CHILDREN IN THIS TYPE OF SITUATION ON A REGULAR BASIS” (LAURA) ANOTHER CONCERN AND PICTURE CIRCULATING ONLINE – IS SEVERAL PICTURES OF REPORTED MOLDY WAFFLES SERVED TO STUDENTS. NOW — THE FIRST THING I DID THIS MORNING WAS CALL THE NORFOLK SCHOOL DISTRICT SPOKESWOMEN. I CALLED BOTH, EMAILED BOTH AND AROUND 2 GOT A RESPONSE THAT THEY ARE LOOKING INTO IT. I ALSO LEFT A MESSAGE FOR THE SCHOOL’S PRINCIPAL. I’LL LET YOU KNOW IF I HEAR BACK.
