DONIPHAN, MO (KAIT) -

A bed bug scare at a Southeast Missouri school prompted the school district to send a letter alerting parents.

According to the letter, a bed bug specimen was found in a Doniphan R-I School District building.

The letter states while the source is unknown, each school building was treated Wednesday night by a professional pest control company.

Region 8 News spoke with Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Snyder Thursday morning.

She said the issue was taken care of, and out of extra precaution school janitorial staff did extra cleaning Thursday before students arrived.

Snyder said the letter was sent to let parents know the issue was handled.

Snyder would not comment on which school the bed bug was found in.
