Q: Hello last year the school says they found a bed bug on one of my children they waited hours befor calling and also
Could not provide the bug they found to prove what it was so for about 4 months my children had to take their bags and coats and whatever else they took to school taken to the nurses to be dried in return left them with out a bag for their books or personal belongings I have received a letter again from the school that I have to have a exterminator verify my home is bug free or they will continue the drying of everything at the school this has cause extreme stress and embarrassment among my children I would like to know if this is okay to do? What do I need to do for them to stop this drying and embrassing process. One bug does not mean my home is infested it could have come off another student at anytime during the day. Appreciate your time
A: An education attorney is most familiar with protocols that school systems apply in the interest of health and public safety in these types of settings. But your question remains open for a week. At this point, you could consider trying to arrange a free initial consult with an attorney - I'm sorry for the ordeal your children have experienced. Good luck
A: Addendum - Your post indicates this took place last year - that would be something to discuss with an attorney in terms of timeliness. If it is a public school, notice of claim issues could be applicable. In other words, the possibility of short filing deadlines - an attorney should advise on that if they contemplate representing you. Good luck
