Parents Concerned After Snakes Found In School

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — Parents say they’re alarmed about snakes seen inside and outside a school south of Atlanta.

Feldwood Elementary School principal Raquel Harris says the Fulton County school system has purchased snake repellent for the perimeter of the school. Harris said employees are monitoring for snake movements at night and have contacted a pest control company.

Parent Temeka Strozier tells WSB-TV that a snake crawled over a parent’s foot during a PTA meeting and open house on Tuesday.

Harris e-mailed parents a letter telling them that the safety of students is the school’s No. 1 priority, and that officials are working diligently to ensure that children are safe.

It wasn’t known what type of snakes are being seen in the school.
