Tamara Elliott reports:

An investigation has been ordered, following a major privacy breach at a Calgary school.

Parent Jaret Kneller said he was shocked when he opened an e-mail sent by the new principal at George P. Vanier School in the northeast community of Winston Heights-Mountview.

Information included e-mails, home phone numbers, names and student ID numbers.

Update: 500 were affected.
