San Augustine superintendent eases fears of tuberculosis at school


By Morgan Thomas - email

SAN AUGUSTINE, TX (KTRE) - Concern that tuberculosis was being exposed to San Augustine Elementary students is nothing to worry about, according to the school district's superintendent.

Walter Key said two students had a relative who was diagnosed with tuberculosis, but both students were tested by the hospital and returned to school Monday with a clean bill of health.

Key said students are being sent home with a pamphlet on tuberculosis today.
