NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A student at Lely High School in Naples has tested positive for tuberculosis and up to 250 students identified as at risk will have to be tested.

The school has scheduled an informational meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 15.

On Jan. 21, the school will provide free testing to at risk students.

Lely High has 1,492 students enrolled this year.
