a fair question since the rat
infestation was discovered at Roanoke's
Fairview Elementary.

Natasha, there's a good example
from 2002.

*CG standup Justin McLeod
jmcleod@wdbj7.com In this memo, it shows that an
odor from a dead rat at Westside
Elementary forced administrators to
keep the windows open to air out the
school.

As a result, students had to wear
their coats in class.

That's one of many eye opening
examples we've uncovered.

When you send your kids off to school
you'd expect it to be free of rodents
so we asked the Health Department how
common are rats in schools.

DICK TABB/VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF
HEALTH: IT'S NOT UNUSUAL TO HAVE RATS
OR MICE COMPLAINTS THROUGHOUT THE CITY.
IT'S NOT UNUSUAL ON OCCASION TO HAVE
THEM IN SCHOOLS.

(END SOT)



SCHOOL ROLL

But in Roanoke City Schools it's
actually quite common.

Our research found in the last two
years, more than half of the city
school's had rats and mice, or evidence
of them.

Documents provided by the school

system show the extent of the problem.

END SCHOOL ROLL

Take William Fleming High School.

In October 2006- it appears rodents
are in the ceiling tiles and are eating
through.

The following month, 3 mice were
found in a trap.

By December, someone wrote "the mice
are just getting worse, please ask
exterminator to rush.

Across town at Patrick Henry, there
were a number of problems in the older
buildings.

In 2006 for example, rats were found
roaming around in the classrooms in old
McGuilkin Hall. Teachers even found
droppings on their desk.

The following year, 13 large and
small rats were caught in that same
building on one day alone.

Next door at Raleigh Court, someone
last January reported an animal in the
ceiling is moving around.

Last April, at Fallon Park Elementary
a large rat the size of a baby kitten
was found in the kitchen.

Nearby at Jackson Middle, someone
reports a rat as big as dog in 2006.


Some schools had an even bigger
problem. At Addison Middle for
example, mice and rats are found last
May throughout the whole building.

There was a similar infestation at
Lincoln Terrace back in 2006.

The school system insists these
problems were taken care of but you may
be asking yourself, aren't rats a
health risk? The simple answer is
yes.

DR. STEPHANIE HARPER/DEPT. OF HEALTH:
RODENT ILLNESSES ARE RARE, THEY RARELY
CAUSE PROBLEMS FOR HUMANS BUT WE
CERTAINLY DON'T WANT HUMAN EXPOSURE.

The Health Department says the
number of rat complaints in Roanoke
City is actually down this year
compared to other years.
