Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

It would be a violation of HIPAA to give the public school information about a patient if there is no written permission from the patient (or parents if the patient is a minor).

Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification.
