An on-going rat problem has prompted Eugene’s 4J school district to place low-impact rodenticide in traps around South Eugene High’s Performing Arts area and the IOP courtyard.
The district emailed parents Friday about the measure. They wrote the rat bait will be removed before students return in the fall.
The email said the perimeter of South Eugene High School has been completely addressed to prevent the entry or exit of rats.
The school hopes to set the bait stations on Monday.
