Spokesman Jay Dillon said one student at the school has been diagnosed with TB, and is believed to have contracted the infection over the summer.
“The student has been treated, but as a precaution all students in the affected student’s classes will be tested,” Dillon said.
Dillon said the student attended McEachern High School last year, so students and staff may be asked to be tested there as well.
He emphasized the need to not panic. “TB actually is somewhat difficult to transmit from one person to another,” he said. “This is a routine protocol that we have executed many times.”
