The news that a student at Trevor Browne High School in Phoenix has tested positive for TB prompted the screening of another 120 students. Parents of the students who needed testing, as well as those who did not, received word of the situation by letter. The initial student has been treated and is back at school. Authorities are confident the threat to other students is low, said Jeanne Fowler, spokesperson for the Maricopa County Department of Public Health. Test results will be available Thursday.
