A Katy ISD official says a highly probable case of swine flu was detected in a student at Beckendorff Junior High School. The student became ill early last month and is recovering.

The campus has been in contact with the student's family and the student is no longer exhibiting symptoms, has responded to treatment and has been cleared by a physician to return to school next week.

At this time there have been no additional confirmed or highly probable cases among students or staff at Beckendorff for the past seven days.
