Bats Infest Paxton High School

By  | 

It's just another school day to Paxton High School students; reading, writing, and rodents.

Bats are living in the roof and walls and have been for some time. School officials say they've tried to exterminate the bats, and they'd still like to get rid of them. But they don't see their presence as a major problem.

Students say they leave classroom doors cracked a bit to clear-out the smell of bat urine and feces. Parents say their kids are coming him sick from the smells and covered with flea bites. They're tired of waiting for a solution. And if they don't get some relief, these parents say they'll pull their children out of Paxton High School.

Parents are meeting with Walton County Schools superintendent and the Paxton principal Thursday night to discuss the bat problem. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the school's cafeteria.
