All student records are confidential. For students over the age of 18, and for all students seeking care for sexual health reasons, no information can be released to anyone, including parents or legal guardians, without the student signing a release of information. Exceptions include in the case of a legal court order, to comply with public health laws, or if a student is a danger to themself or others.
Students under the age of 18 will always be notified of a parent/guardian request for information about their medical care before such information will be shared.
