"The parents of students at John Adams High School in Ozone Park are decrying a lack of notice given to them about the discovery of bed bugs in the building, according to published reports.
NBC News first reported last Thursday that the school is set to be fumigated during the break between Christmas and New Year’s Eve due to the discovery of the blood-sucking bugs.
Students were sent home with notes detailing the infestation, according to NBC, but some pupils apparently knew about it a week before parents were officially notified.
One parent, who didn’t reveal her name, told NBC, “They call me when my son is late, they call me when he’s absent, they call me for every little thing they call me. They didn’t mention this.”
On top of that, the school remained open days after everyone was told about the bed bugs.
The Department of Education said in a statement to the news outlet, “We’re committed to providing all students with a safe and clean learning environment.”"
