Out of what it is calling an 'abundance of caution,' Barberton High School is shifting to remote learning on Wednesday and Thursday to allow for exterminators to inspect for bed bugs.

According to a Facebook post from Barberton City Schools, the district received many phone calls on Tuesday about bed bugs at Barberton High School.

"While we have not had any reports of students getting bed bugs in their home as a result of their attendance at BHS, we want to put everyone’s mind at ease. Out of an abundance of caution, we have asked exterminators to come into the high school building again tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9am to do another inspection and treatment of the entire building," the district wrote in its post. 

Barberton High School will shift to a remote learning schedule for both Wednesday, September 1 and Thursday, September 2. This is for the high school only. All other buildings and buses will operate as usual. 

Normal in-person learning will resume on Friday at Barberton High School.

"We know how to do remote learning, so let’s be at our best over the next 2 days," the district added.
