A case of tuberculosis has been reported at Phoenix Elementary School in Grand Forks. Grand Forks Schools are alerting parents district-wide. The school district called parents with the information around 4pm this afternoon and posted a letter on the Public Schools' website.

The letter says people who have been potentially exposed will be screened by Grand Forks Public Health. Tuberculosis is a disease of the lungs spread from person to person through the air. The district declined to comment further until a news conference tomorrow morning.
