Barry Tech is open tomorrow, June 7.
We recently found bed bugs in the school. Bed bugs are a nuisance, but their bites are not known to spread disease. Bed bugs are usually active at night and feed on human blood. The bite does not hurt at first, but it may become swollen and itch, much like a mosquito bite. Watch for clusters of bites, usually in a line, on exposed areas of the body. If you have concerns for you or your child, please contact your physician.
The source of bed bugs often cannot be determined, as bed bugs may be found in many places including hotels, planes, and movie theaters. Even though it is unlikely for bed bugs to be spread in schools, Barry Tech will conduct an inspection and, if needed, will treat the area where the bed bugs were found.
Barry Tech will continue to work to identify bed bugs in the school. This may include visual inspection of children over their clothing. We will additionally provide a thorough inspection of the school, and have licensed pest control specialists treat the rooms if a problem is found.
Contact your physician for proper care and treatment of bed bug bites.
If you have any questions regarding bed bugs, please contact Ms. Wendy Richter, Executive Manager of Safety, Health and Security for Nassau BOCES at 516-396-2401. If you have any questions regarding bed bugs found in your home, refer to the Nassau County Department of Health’s web site at: http://www.nassaucountyny.gov/agencies/Health/EnvHealth/bedbugs.html.

The show's '50s theme is a nod to Nassau BOCES anniversary.
