Villa Park Elementary historic building demolition brings about rodent problem
classes moved off campus
Orange Unified released the following statement on Tuesday Jun 6, 2016 regarding a rodent problem that apparently has resulted in staff and students being bitten by mites from rodents:
The District is aware of the rodent issue at Villa Park Elementary School. This issue was first discovered when some staff and students reported bug bites, which through the investigation, were identified to be rodent mites. While rodents live throughout Southern California in bushes and trees, it is likely that these were disturbed with work preparing to demolish the vacant 1920’s buildings on the campus.
We appreciate the support of the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District and will continue to work with them to resolve this issue.
Based on the Vector Control’s advice and in consultation with parents and teachers, it was decided to move two classes to Serrano Elementary School yesterday to allow time to make sure the Villa Park Elementary Multi-purpose Room was free of rodents. That was confirmed by the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District this morning (Tuesday, June 6) and all students will remain on campus today. T
he building with the original complaint remains vacant and will be treated following protocols as laid out by Vector Control.
