Students at Cherry Valley Elementary School have been overloaded with mosquitoes and bees. Now some parents are worried about how productive their child's learning environment really is.

Just recently at Parent Night, instead of learning about their child's curriculum parents spent the night brainstorming on ways to keep them safe.

Ginger Beck has a fourth grade son at Cherry Valley Elementary School. Screens on the window at the school are scarce, Ginger says she worries that the day is spent swatting instead of learning.

Cherry Valley Principal Diane Roman says there's a work order in for the screens. She says the School District says they should have all screens in a few weeks. But right now that's not quick enough for some parents who worry about West Nile especially with the heavy rains over the past couple of days.
