YONKERS, N.Y. -- A Yonkers charter school had to be fumigated on Wednesday after teachers discovered bed bugs in one of the classrooms, according to a News 12 report.

Parents of students at the Charter School for Educational Excellence are reportedly upset because the school did not inform parents about the discovery of the bugs for two days.

Teachers overheard a student talking about a bed bug infestation at the student's home on Monday and then found four or five bed bugs in the classroom the next day, according to the report.

Students were reportedly sent home with bed bug kits on Wednesday.
