Classes are expected to resume at the Titchfield High School in Portland.

The students were sent home on Thursday, after persons allegedly placed a plant that causes skin irritation called ‘cowitch’ in several classrooms.

On Thursday, scores of students complained about the itching caused by the plant.

The Public Health department in Portland said it is safe for students to resume their lessons.

The department said it has conducted checks at the school, and the pollen has been removed from the affected classrooms.

More than 1,900 students attend the school.
