Concerns at Beck Elementary


I still have not talked to the superintendent. I am not comfortable sending my child to school until I know the situation has been resolved. Through my research I feel the school spraying is not sufficient. I would like for an independent agency or company inspect the school. I feel that Beck has a great staff and my son loves going to school there. I do not want to transfer him but I do want answers form the district. This will effect an entire community if this issue is not taken care of properly.

I understand that homes would have to be treated as well and that can be expensive. I would like to set up fundraisers for the homes with bedbugs and fleas to off set costs. The administration, Beck Elementary, the parents and the community need to work together on this issue rather than keeping it confidential. Prevention and early detection are key in containing this infestation
