So why will they not inform us if it was an employee or student???? I feel we have the right to know! God forbid if it was a cook!

Why?? So someone can put it on Topix & run names through the mud trying to figure out who it is?! It's confidential as it should be..nothing would be any different if you actually did know who (might) have exposed your Child! More than likely it was a Negative TB case anyway & probably done as a precaution if someone was really walking around with an ACTIVE case of TB the School would have made the test mandatory for everyone or they would not be allowed back until it was done!
