Superintendent Michael Hayden has been conducting daily morning walk-throughs to monitor the situation and ensure the safety of students and staff. In addition, the district is working closely with staff members to implement pest preventative measures.

Hayden recently reported visible progress, as a deceased mouse was discovered in the school cafeteria. This development follows confirmation from the New York State Department of Health that they are investigating reports of rodent infestations at Clyde-Savannah schools in Wayne County.

A health inspector conducted a field visit on Tuesday, and the department is currently assessing the extent of the issue. Hayden mentioned that the district receives monthly reports from a pest management firm. While the February report indicated some mice activity, the March report showed no signs of rodent presence.

Superintendent Hayden assured the community that the district takes such concerns seriously and responds promptly whenever evidence of rodents is reported.
