Portsmouth Mom Files Complaint Over School Health Records

A Portsmouth woman has complained to the state attorney general's office after saying she was illegally denied access to her 10-year-old daughter's school health records.

Kristel Massarotti claims in the letter she repeatedly tried to get the fifth-grader's records from Portsmouth Middle School, but the school department only agreed to a partial release of the information.

The department, according to the complaint, said in a response that the additional records she requested were not public information.

Massarotti says her daughter has a medical condition and has a plan under the state's rehabilitation law.

The attorney general's office said it was reviewing the complaint.

School officials were not available for comment during the Christmas holiday.
