Los Angeles County health officials are keeping an eye on hundreds of Arroyo High School students due to possible tuberculosis exposure.

The students may have been exposed to tuberculosis while attending summer school last year.

Health officials say in the fall of 2012, they confirmed a person associated with the high school had tuberculosis. The school district was notified this week.

Health officials also started calling parents, so they can have their kids screened.
