TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — As a parent, when you send your children to school, you want them to be safe.
One Twin Falls father learned, however, that not only was his daughter attacked on campus but there was video evidence of the altercation.
One evening in mid-October, Leslie Montgomery said her daughter received a barrage of emails to her school email account. Montgomery said her daughter— a seventh grader at the Christian private school Greenleaf Friends Academy — had been the subject of bullying by fellow students since enrolling in the school last year.
Millions of students are heading back to school with a challenge they didn't have to face last year.
The more contagious delta variant is fueling a nationwide COVID-19 surge that's sending younger people to hospitals — including children.

Some New Jersey colleges recommend students limit the number of people who join them for move-in day. Others are reminding students that booster shots will be required to live in dorms and attend in-person classes.
