SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

The bat problem at Sulphur High School is now under control, officials said on Wednesday.

Calcasieu Parish School Board Public Information Officer Kirby Smith said the problem was dealt with last week but a few bats may have re-surfaced this week.

"As you can see, we brought in cleaning crews and removed any of the bats that were there," Smith said. "Students are not able to enter the area where we had the issue. The cleaning crew we brought in has air purifiers."

An alert was sent to parents through the School Messenger system.

"When the problem was brought to our attention last week administrators too immediate action," Smith said in the alert. "Students have been relocated from affected classes are not permitted to enter the area where the bats were located. A cleanup crew has been on campus since Monday."

A representative from the Health Department also visited the campus.

Smith said she personally toured the school Wednesday morning and saw no signs of the bats.
