Rat sighting cancels preschool classes in La Salle

Posted by wlpo on September 18, 2014

You know how you feel when you see something dark and furry out of the corner of your eye. Preschool classes at Jackson School in La Salle were cancelled Thursday morning after a teacher spotted two rats in the classroom.

Superintendent Dan Marenda sent out notices to parents Thursday letting them know that preschool classes will be meeting at Lincoln and Northwest Schools Friday.

Marenda says they had signs of rodents in a storage room around the beginning of the school year and cleaned the area and set traps. They thought they were in the clear until noticing a funny smell yesterday and the sighting of the rats Thursday morning.

They’ve called their exterminator and the La Salle County Health Department. Once they have things clean and think it’s safe for students to return, they will let parents know.
