Lenox: High school to destroy student records
In accordance with state regulations, all temporary cumulative school and health records for students who have graduated or left Lenox Memorial Middle & High School during the 2009 year or earlier will be destroyed after July 31.
State regulations require that student records be destroyed no later than five years after the student graduates. However, the high school transcript that includes the grades for the four years of high school is maintained by the high school for 60 years following graduation.
Any student who is interested in retrieving their records before they are destroyed should contact the Guidance Department at (413) 637-5560 between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Students born before 1989 who received services from the Special Education Department will also be destroyed in the coming months. Former students who wish to review their temporary record, and/or receive the school’s original and sole copy of the above documents prior to destruction, should call the Special Education Office at (413) 637-5571 by July 30.
