Augusta Independent School Principal Robin Kelsch had enough to worry about with the flu. Kelsch didn't need a student's report of bedbugs at the school to make things worse.
But, that's what he got.
Kelsch told The Ledger Independent that the report turned out to be a hoax, but school office phones were ringing with concerned parents on the other end (http://bit.ly/y6sYQw).
Kelsch said the rumor started when a student brought in a water bug and squashed it, then told her friends it was a bedbug "just to scare them."
Kelsch said officials checked the school, then bleached and cleaned it and found "absolutely no" bedbugs.
As far as can be determined, Kelsch said, no one used the bedbug rumor as an excuse to skip school.
