Students at one Queens school could be bringing home more than assignments, binders and textbooks -- bed bugs may also be stowed away in their backpacks.

“We're committed to providing all students with a safe and clean learning environment,” the department said in a statement.
Parents said they found out about the infestation on Tuesday, when students were sent home with letters from the school. It’s not clear how widespread or serious the bed bug infestation at the school is, but students told News 4 that they had heard about the parasitic critters for a week before they were sent home with letters.
