A letter sent out to parents Monday from a Wahiawa elementary school saying a student had the measles was wrong.

State Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo says there is no new reported case of measles in the islands.

She says the false report resulted from parents who believed their pre-kindergarten child had come down with the infectious disease.

A Department of Education spokeswoman said the letter from the Daniel K. Inouye Elementary School was distributed out of an abundance of caution.
