( Southgate, Kentucky ) - Students in the Southgate Independent School District saw classes cancelled Thursday and Friday because of an infestation.

Maintenance staff has been working to clear the buildings of fleas for the past few days, but now professional exterminators have been called in. The treatment needs two days to be effective, and school leaders are doing it now so they can confirm that the problem's been dealt with over the weekend.

Classes will resume on Monday, September 16th.
