Schools re-opened on Long Island right after Labor Day, and look, we already have a privacy breach. Elana Glowatz reports:

Port Jefferson school district Superintendent Ken Bossert assured the community on Tuesday that an error that sent state test scores to the wrong households was a one-time occurrence.
