Marion High School Cancels Class Due to Bedbugs

Marion High School is closed today, after bedbugs were found in at least two classrooms.

Administrators say they believe the infestation is isolted to those two rooms, but they're having the building inspected and treated Wednesday to get rid of the pests wherever they are found.

An announcement on Tuesday alerted parents that a handful of students were affected by the bugs. Leaders later decided to cancel class today. A decision on next steps is expected later this afternoon.

Jennifer Fuller joined Capitol News Illinois in July 2023 as the organization’s broadcast director. She will oversee the launch and operations of CNI’s new broadcast division.
