DUTCHTOWN - Like uninvited houseguests, the bats at Dutchtown High finally got the hint from their hosts after a prolonged stay at the school in northwestern Ascension Parish and left.

School officials tell The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1g1dwfB ) the Mexican free-tailed bats are gone and, hopefully, won't be back after changes to the high school gym complex's gutters.

Officials with the state Department of Health and Hospitals inspected the buildings Friday and gave the all clear.

Johnnie Balfantz, a school system spokesman, the gym passed inspection and reopen Monday.

After a March 27 DHH inspection, the school system voluntarily closed its gym complex - two buildings, linked by an enclosed hallway, that house two gym spaces along with band and choir rooms.
