MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire elementary school that paid $600,000 to fix a problem with bats in its classrooms may not be done yet.

At least one bat was seen in a classroom Wednesday at the James Mastricola Upper Elementary School in Merrimack. Principal Marcia McGill tells WMUR-TV workers are in the process of sealing some cracks in the building, and the bat got in before it was done.

Administrators said a pipe also has been installed in a wall to redirect any curious bats.

McGill said they aren’t expecting any more bats.

In November, workers found bat feces in a cavity between an exterior brick wall and an inside block. Eight classrooms were closed during the cleanup.
