SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Maricopa County Public Health Department has determined that a Kiva Elementary School student was not exposed to measles after all, according to the Scottsdale Unified School District.

The district sent a letter home to parents Friday notifying them of a student's possible exposure to measles.

The student was not showing any signs or symptoms of the highly contagious disease, but a family member of the student had a suspected case. Health officials have told the district that the student's family member does not have measles.

Currently, there are only two confirmed cases of measles in Maricopa County.
