Important to note: While we recognize that families may want detailed information regarding some situations, it is important to note that, according to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, schools are not allowed to share out with their school community-specific details of an incident if it includes any personally identifiable information about a student or information that a reasonable person in the community can use to identify a specific student.
