A Tonganoxie High School student has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Tonganoxie school district released a statement Wednesday afternoon that a student has tested positive for the virus. The Leavenworth County Health Department notified the school district about the positive case, according to the release.

The school district is in contact with LCHD for contact tracing and "will take the steps necessary to protect the health and of our students and staff," the social media post read.
