Bat problem forces Greene Co. High to dismiss early

Posted: Updated:
EUTAW - AL -

    For the second time in four months, students at Greene County High School have had to doge bats inside the building.

    ABC 33/40 obtained a picture a student at Greene County High School took of a bat on floor in a classroom before the Christmas holidays.

     Thursday morning, another bat was spotted flying through a hallway upstairs.  Administrators have shut off that side of the school including two classrooms until exterminators reassess the area.  Also, classes were dismissed at noon Thursday.

    Superintendent Emma Louie admits several bats were removed from the same location back in December, but she insists there is not an infestation of bats inside the school.

    Another student sent ABC 33/40 a picture of what appears to be several bats hanging outside a second floor window.

    Louie says a hole was found where they believed bats were getting into the building.  They closed it off.  She says parents have nothing to worry about.  "They say they [bats] can come in very tiny tiny spaces.  So, they [exterminators] saw a few small spaces.  They have put some type of duct there where they can go out but they can not come back in.  So, I do not expect this to be an infestation or we have an abundance of bats.  No one has seen huge numbers.  As I said, this morning we saw one bat," Louie said.

    Exterminators were back at the school Thursday evening taking another look at the bat situation.

   Superintendent Louie says no student has been harmed by the bats.   Also, pending what exterminators find, classes will resume at the school Friday morning.
