DENVER (AP) Administrators at a Denver high school have decided to close the campus through Tuesday after bed bugs were found in a classroom.

The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/1aicF3n) three of the bugs were discovered recently at West High School, but a follow-up inspection determined that the campus was not infested. The school was shut down Saturday to allow exterminators to treat the building.

Students have off Monday for Columbus Day and the campus will remain closed Tuesday, before reopening Wednesday.
