DALLAS (AP) - Dallas school officials say four of the five students in their district who were being monitored for Ebola have returned to school after being cleared by health authorities.

The Dallas Independent School District said the four students returned to school Monday, one day earlier than expected. The students had completed their 21-day monitoring period as of midnight Sunday but officials didn’t expect their return until Tuesday.

Superintendent Mike Miles said in a statement that “they were obviously eager to return back to the school environment and decided on their own to attend.”

Three other students who had been monitored for the virus and who attended schools in the Richardson school district will now attend an elementary school in the Dallas district. They are scheduled to begin attending the school Tuesday.
