“We understand that people will naturally have questions about this, but we must ask everyone to understand that confidentiality in these matters is critical,” said Rock Springs High Principal Glen Suppes. “We’re focused now on conducting an investigation that’s as thorough as possible while also being fair to everyone involved. We’ll share more information about this as we are able.”The school and school district have no further comment at this time.
