A Vermilion Parish School Board committee received a report on the cost of removing bats from Gueydan High School.
The report states that the overall cost to remove the bats is approximately $40,000.
According to board officials, the process to remove the bats included several nights of work at the school. Once all the bats were removed from the building, the walls and hallways had to be cleaned.
Officials say the next phase of work will be to fill in any cracks with spray-foam insulation.
