CLAY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - One local school district is being proactive, when it comes to preventing the spread of bed bugs.

Clay Community Schools sent home a notice to parents.

It says: "Bed bug infestations are continuing to spread through single family, and multi-unit homes. This means more people are living with bed bugs than ever before."

The notice goes on to describe the district's policy if children were to bring bed bugs to school. It also explains what parents should be looking for at home, and how they can stop the spread.

The district says it will not exclude students if they identify a home-infestation.
