Central Point, Ore. -- After two days of no school students at Sams Valley Elementary school returned to class Friday.

The district closed the school to sanitize after a staff member died Tuesday of complications from strep throat.

Tami Smurzynski was a beloved teacher's aid at Sams Valley Elementary.

A memorial will be held Saturday at 3 pm at Del Rio Vineyards where Smurzynski also worked part time.
