A D.C. elementary school that closed Monday because of problems with pests and bed bugs said students will have class beginning Wednesday at a new location.
On Friday, D.C. Public Schools announced that Savoy Elementary in Anacostia would be closed Monday and Tuesday for “a thorough cleaning of the building” after problems with rodents and other pests at the school last month.
On Monday, officials said the school would reopen Wednesday about three miles away at Ferebee Hope Elementary School at 3999 8th St. SE. Transportation to and from the temporary location will be provided for students, officials said, with more information to follow later this week.
Meals for students are available Monday and Tuesday at the Barry Farm Recreation Center at 1230 Sumner Rd. SE, officials said.
