Students at I-S 125 complaining of rodent problem

Kids at I-S 125 say they can't focus on learning because they're too busy dodging rodents.

Parents say their kids have come home and complained of seeing mice and rats in classrooms. They also say they've seen roaches in the cafeteria. Parents called the health department and officials say they will inspect the school on Thursday. Parents are angry and worried about sending their kids to the school.

The Department of Education says they are aware of the problem. They've set traps around the school and they're calling in exterminators this weekend.
