BRIDGEPORT - Students at a Bridgeport high school say more bedbugs have been found on campus, prompting parents to criticize the faculty's handling of the situation. The insects were found at Central High School, and school officials say they sent out a letter on Feb. 2. Parents say the letter includes false information that downplays the insects' presence. "It's your right to know what's impacting the life of your children," one parent said. The school says it immediately brought in an exterminator, and some teachers say students and parents are overreacting.
