TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WCTV) -- The Florida A&M University Developmental Research School will reopen Monday after the school was closed for cleaning following a case of hand, foot and mouth disease.

According to Kanya Stewart, the Assistant Director of Media Relations, one student was reported ill on Thursday and as a precaution, they sanitized the school.

As of Sunday, no other instances of the disease have been reported. All classes at FAMU DRS will be held on their regular schedule Monday.

A basketball tournament that was set to run all weekend at the school was cancelled after the buildings couldn't be cleaned in time.

The WBOA Comets Spring Shootout was scheduled to kick off Friday night.

Friday morning, the superintendent of FAMU DRS announced the basketball tournament had to be cancelled. He said the school initially thought the cleaning process would only take a few hours, but crews said the sanitation would take days.
