Yikes! A Bed Bug (As In One) Found On Premises At The Carroll School

May 17, 2012

And we thought the bedbug epidemic had bitten the dust. But according to a notice sent to parents of The Carroll School Tuesday, the pesky little critters are still gnawing in Carroll Gardens… or at least one is. The Patch reports that a notice was sent home with kids alerting them that a single bedbug—yes, as in one—was found on the premises of P.S. 58 at 330 Smith Street. A flyer from Principal Giselle McGee dated May 14 stated that “there are bed bugs in the school,” according to a parent that contacted the Carroll Gardens blog.

“We recently found a confirmed bed bug in your child’s school,” the letter reads. “Finding a bed bug does not mean that our school is infested. Bed bugs are often unknowingly brought into schools by building occupants and as a result we may have future sightings.” The notice also includes a description of the symptoms of a bed bug bite.

Patch contacted the school, where a source acknowledged that “a single bug” had been identified on a child and that a technician will be coming in for a second time later this week to check for a potential… second bed bug.

Brooklyn Heights Montessori School Expands In Cobble Hill

May 2, 2012

The Brooklyn Heights Montessori School—the single such accredited preschool-8th grade facility in NYC—is expanding its facilities and programs for students. The school has purchased a property adjacent to its Cobble Hill base at 185 Court Street at 12 Dean Street, which adds 11,000 square feet to the property.

According to the NYC Private Schools Blog, “That’s a big expansion, but school officials note it is necessary to keep up with growing demand for the Montessori method of education. More parents are seeking out a Montessori education for their children and Brooklyn Heights being one of the most prominent schools in New York City means they are poised to increase their student body in the next few years.”

Brooklyn Heights Montessori School opened in 1965.
