Two Dunwoody students who had returned recently for West Africa were stopped from returning to school this week because of Ebola concerns, ajc.com is reporting.

The student’s father worked for CARE, a humanitarian organization, and the family returned from Africa in September, the web site says. They sought to enroll the children at Dunwoody High School and Dunwoody Elementary.

Ajc.com said CARE officials wrote a letter saying the family had been in the United States longer than the 21-day watch period for signs of Ebola, but the district required confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control or the county health department.
