WHITESBORO, Tex. -- Whitesboro Independent School District officials say they have had a case of a staph infection at the high school but that they are taking care of the problem.

Whitesboro superintendent Dr. Ray Lea says the school became aware of a student with a strain of staphylococcus infection on Tuesday. They say the student developed the infection about two weeks ago. Officials say they received a call from the student's doctor saying he was fine to go back to school.

Crews will work to sterilize the building, and teachers are encouraging their students to wash their hands.
