of the situation as quickly as possible. >> i can tell you, said parents with the bed bugs were notified individually. and other parents were notified through letter. but it didn't specify that bed bugs or rodents were found. the principal only outlined the process that the staff goes through to keep the school clean and safe. in northeast, delia goncalves, wusa 9. >> it's a problem they gotta get hold of here pretty quick. bed bugs can travel on kids' backpacks. concerned parents should wash their child's clothes and bedding in hot water. the epa does not require schools be shut down in order to treat bed bugs. we are just getting started on wusa 9news at 5:00. here's your evening planner. winter showed up for a little while. down to 36. and 33 at 10:00. we'll come back and talk about one of our colder nights in
