Ebola Worries Could Keep Some Dallas Students Home

Wednesday, 01 Oct 2014 05:41 PM

The announcement that five Dallas schoolchildren were possibly exposed to the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S. has some nervous parents planning to keep their kids home.

Several parents on Wednesday picked up their children early from a school that's one of four that officials say the students attend.

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles says the students were in class this week after possibly being in contact with the man over the weekend. He says none are showing symptoms, and are being monitored at home.

Marcie Pardo says she's taking no chances. She was among several parents who left L.L. Hotchkiss Elementary School saying her child won't be back this week. Pardo says "it's the contagious part" that's worrisome.

Officials emphasize Ebola isn't contagious until symptoms begin.
