TULSA, Okla. – Officials in Tulsa say a second high school student has tested positive for tuberculosis.

Earlier this month, Jenks High School alerted parents after learning that a student tested positive for the disease.

At the time, school leaders said the student hadn’t been in class for about three weeks but they decided to notify students who may have had contact with the teen on the bus or in class.

The Tulsa Health Department also offered those students free testing for tuberculosis.

On Thursday, Jenks Public School District confirmed that another student was diagnosed with the disease.

According to FOX 23, the district is working with the health department to test other students who may have been exposed.
