The Hill County Sheriff's Department helped us out greatly by capturing a bat that was in Wolverine Gym today. Once the bat was located, I stood watch to make sure it would not fly away while we waited for the Animal Control Officer to arrive. We relocated Junior High and High School PE classes just to be cautious.
No students or staff were ever in contact with the bat, but we will still be sending it off for testing.
We greatly appreciate the speedy response time of the Hill County Sheriff's Office! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school.
It was an interesting day to be a Wolverine!
UPDATE 09/25/2019 - Testing on the bat came back negative for rabies.
