Student rosters will be released only to school personnel.

--Participation in officially recognized activities and sports
--Weights and Heights of members of athletic teams
--Dates of Attendance
--Degrees and Awards Received
--The most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student, and
--School related photographs for use in yearbooks or other publications
Any parent of any student in the district may notify the district by notifying the principal of the school in which said student attends, of the parent's desire that none of the above information may be released without the parent's consent, provided that such notification is given the district with thirty (30) days of legal public notice which is published annually in local newspapers.
Gifts to teachers, teacher assistants, or other personnel by students on special occasions are not prohibited; however, solicitation of gifts from students by any employee of the Board of Education is prohibited.
