Vigo County health officials will be offering free testing for tuberculosis next week for students and staff at an eastside school.

A suspected case has been reported at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. It has not been confirmed as an active case, but the department wants to be pro-active since the school year will be ending soon.

Parents were notified Monday and information/consent cards about the testing are being sent home with all students today.
