Even after his three-year tenure as assistant principal at Oakland Mills High School ended in 1999, Frank Eastham never really left. After all, Eastham lives a few blocks from the Columbia school. And he continued to wear clothes displaying Oakland Mills pride. "You could leave Oakland Mills [High School] but you can't take Oakland Mills out of someone," said Eastham, who calls the school his home. "I would frequently catch flak from some of my other administrators because I continued to wear Oakland Mills spirit wear when I was out and about in the community."

A student at Watkins Mill High School in Montgomery County has active tuberculosis and parents were told Feb. 6 in a letter that some other staff and students will be tested for the disease, though the risk of transmission is small. The letter from school and health officials told parents that the infected student is being treated and there is no additional risk of exposure. Those who need to be tested had classes with the infected student or an after-school activity between October and January.

"We have interviewed every student whose name was brought to our attention and pursued every piece of information we have been given," Todd wrote in the letter.

The student, who is noncommunicable, has since returned to school. It is unknown how the student contracted the disease, but health officials said Thursday that the student did not contract the disease at school.
