A metro Detroit high school sent a letter to parents reporting bed bugs were found in a classroom on Wednesday. 

Harper Woods High School principal wrote in the letter that the bugs were discovered in classroom B107 in the 9th grade academy.

She wrote: "Students were immediately removed from the classroom and the room will not be occupied until we are certain it is free of the bugs."

An exterminator is expected to conduct an inspection of the entire high school and provide treatment of the affected area. 

Parents are encouraged to place students' belongings in a plastic bag until machine-washed and dried in high heat.
