Student finds bat at Easley school

EASLEY — Parents were alerted Monday morning after a student found a dead bat in an East End Elementary School classroom.

The student notified a teacher, and the teacher immediately ensured all students washed their hands and used disinfectant wipes. Custodians disposed of the bat and disinfected the classroom.

A contractor was scheduled to examine the school Monday afternoon to prevent more bats from entering the school.

If additional steps or information is necessary, parents will be notified, district spokesman John Eby said.
