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.

This back-to-school season, thousands of Washington children will ride school buses, find their desks and sit down for lunch with peers. In-person learning will be ubiquitous again, even if being fully vaccinated isn’t: Only 40% of Washington 12- to 15-year-olds are vaccinated — and so are 47% of 16- and 17-year-olds. A vaccine for young children isn’t expected until midwinter.
