CLYDE, N.Y. — The Clyde Savannah Central School District said they’re making progress in addressing the rodent problem. The superintendent Michael Hayden, is making “daily morning walk-throughs” to scan for pests. He also says they’re working with staff to take pest preventative measures.

Hayden said they’re already seeing progress and found a dead mouse in the cafeteria just yesterday.

This comes after the New York State Department of Health confirmed that it’s investigating reports of rodent infestation at Clyde-Savannah schools in Wayne County.

Health officials said an inspector was on-site on Tuesday for a field visit. The health department is working to determine the extent of the problem.

Hayden said the district gets a monthly report from a pest management firm and that report did show some mice activity in February but none for March.

“Any time we receive information that there is evidence of mice, the district responds accordingly,” said Hayden.
