Ebola Thomas Eric Duncan

Schoolchildren exposed

1 Oct, 2014

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles says five children from four of the district’s campuses were possibly exposed to the virus:

  • Conrad High School
  • Tasby Middle School
  • Hotchkiss Elementary School
  • Dan D. Rogers Elementary School

Tasby Middle School shares a campus with Jack Lowe Sr. Elementary School, but DISD officials say no students at Lowe Elementary were directly exposed. The students who may have had contact with Thomas Eric Duncan attended classes earlier in the week, but none have exhibited symptoms. Miles:

So, the odds of them passing on any sort of virus is very low

The children are at home and being monitored by Dallas County Health and Human Services, while the schools have been staffed with additional health employees and more sanitation staff.
