Eight Children Impacted by Ebola Patient to Attend Dallas ISD Schools on Tuesday

Five children who were quarantined after having contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, who died from Ebloa, will return to Dallas ISD schools on Tuesday, DISD superintendent Mike Miles said.

In addition, three students from Richardson ISD, who were being monitored because of their exposure to Duncan, will transfer into Jill Stone Elementary School in Dallas ISD, Miles said.

DISD officials said Friday that discussions have been held with staff members at the schools to ensure everyone is aware that there is no way the students have Ebola. Teachers at the campuses provided students with a lesson on the virus.

Classrooms where the students will return received extra attention. A psychological services representative gave students in those classes a lesson about the virus, and they were talked to about being sensitive and conscientious.
