Greenville Co. School Officials Battle Bat Problem Again At Elementary School

Posted: Updated:
Greenville County School District officials tell 7 On Your Side, bats have been spotted again at Fountain Inn Elementary School.
 
Spokesperson Oby Lyles says the bats were seen entering and exiting the exterior walls of the gym. Lyles says this time, the bats burrowed through the foam sealant between the roof drain and the exterior gym wall. He says no bats have been spotted inside the building.
 
Lyles says the district is taking additional steps to keep them out.

"Bats will continue to try to get into any access point so we continue to check," he explained. "You know you think you've filled in all those areas. We thought they had filled in everything, and obviously we did, and they ate through it."

Lyles says the district will fill those foam sealant areas with wire and concrete. They also sent an automated telephone message to all parents, to keep them updated on the situation.
