Leprosy, the dreaded Middle Ages disease once believed to be a punishment from God, might have afflicted students in Southern California, officials said.

The Jurupa Unified School District — in Riverside County, east of Los Angeles — sent a letter home with kids last week, saying it had an obligation to keep parents informed about the disfiguring skin disease.

“The school district has received an unconfirmed report that two students at Indian Hills Elementary School have been diagnosed with Hansen’s disease (leprosy),” according to the letter inked by district superintendent Elliott Duchon. “In an abundance of caution, (the) administration wanted to share this information with you as soon as possible.”

The letter quoted the US Department of Health and Human Services’ description of leprosy being “not highly transmissible” and “very treatable.”

Leprosy is most associated with the Middle Ages, when those afflicted were cast off from society.

Leprosy in an American school, one in ever progressive CA. How can this possibly be?

There's a reason why we once screened the health of immigrants racist, xenophobic, hateful bitter clingers that we were.

I guess we ought to all thank Teddy Kennedy for gallantly showing the way to rework immigration for the benefit of global finance and corporate not US citizens
