FORT GAY, W.Va. (AP) - A Wayne County high school is closed after a bed bug was found in a classroom.

Tolsia High Principal Reva Sanders-Wallace says students were dismissed early Thursday after a teacher and students discovered the insect in a classroom. The school was closed Friday so an exterminator could treat the building, according to media reports.

Sanders-Wallace says the discovery of the bed bug does not mean the school is infested with the pest, but she said she wanted to aggressively deal with the problem.

The school is located near the Kentucky border and serves Fort Gay and Crum.

Sanders-Wallace said students should return to classes on Monday.
