WARE SHOALS (WSPA) Five snakes have been found at Ware Shoals High School over the past ten days according to the school district.
The superintendent of Ware Shoals School District 51 confirms – in an email to 7 News – that what appear to be non-poisonous rat snakes or king snakes were found. The superintendent says the snakes are small, between six and eight inches in length.
A local pest control company came to the campus and spread materials to control the problem. Two snakes were found in a classroom on Monday.
Superintendent Fay Sprouse says additional measures were taken by the school maintenance staff to seal up cracks and crevices.
Photos of the snakes were posted by a student on Facebook who didn’t want to be identified.
