A Newark City Schools spokesperson confirmed the presence of bugs at Newark High School, but he denied that the district has a bed bug infestation.

10TV reached out to the district after we obtained information about multiple cases of the bugs at the high school.

The district's community outreach coordinator said one student had some type of bugs on his book bag on Monday, and a different student found similar insects on his bag last month.

In both cases, the district said it sent the students home to put their book bags in the clothes dryer.

The district called them isolated incidents.
