The Campbell River School District has sent out a warning to parents and guardians of Timberline Secondary students that some of their personal information was left unsecured on a school server and could possibly have been “inappropriately accessed.”
District Secretary-Treasurer Kevin Patrick says the file in question contained “some student names, identification, home phone number and parent email address,” and that the file was on a server accessible to students and staff using a login code.
