Conn. girl goes back to school

31 Oct, 2014

Seven-year-old Ikeoluwa Opayemi is allowed by the Milford School District to return to class. The 21-day quarantine previously imposed by the district after her trip to Nigeria was due to expire over the weekend, allowing her to go to school on Monday. Milford’s superintendent of schools, and Ikeoluwa’s father issue a joint statement:

She is perfectly healthy and can take part in school activities, without restriction.

Her family and the school district have both agreed to settle the lawsuit the family filed after she was barred from school. It isn’t stated whether the reversal of the quarantine is part of the conditions of settling the suit.
