As if high school isn't scary enough on its own, now one Kentucky high school is dealing with a major pest problem.

WTVQ reported that the Fayette County Public School District is responding after a snake allegedly fell from the ceiling onto a teacher's desk. According to the teacher, Nathan Spalding, a "baby rat snake" fell from his ceiling on Wednesday morning (September 21st.)

Spalding wrote in a Facebook post:
