Friday was sent to parents Friday, warning them that the third grade in the school was positively tested for mumps.
School officials say they do not believe that the student came in close contact with all students in the school who were not vaccinated.
The officials further say that all students are required to show documentary evidence of vaccination for measles, mumps and rubella. They say that almost all students in the Otis school have provided adequate documentation, but a small number do not. They contact those families.
