In reaction to concern about a swarm of media attention on last week's hazing incident, Rye City Schools Superintendent Dr. Edward Shine sent a message to the Rye High School Parents' Organization today assuring parents the District would maintain the privacy of all the children involved.
"Parents and the news media are seeking more information about the victims and the RHS juniors involved in these allegations," said Dr. Shine's message. "While this is uncomfortable, I need everyone to know that Federal law prevents the District and its officials from sharing any information about the victims and the students who have been charged. Federal law also prohibits District officials from sharing any information about disciplinary procedures and/or consequences such as suspension."
