The site coordinator of a community-based afterschool program is worried about a sixth grade student enrolled in the program. The student told the site coordinator that she’s in jeopardy of repeating sixth grade based on her grades. The site coordinator notices that the student has seemed more anxious and withdrawn as time passes.After the student doesn’t show up for the program for two consecutive weeks and the site coordinator is unable to reach the student’s mother by phone or e-mail, the coordinator becomes even more concerned about the student’s well-being. She calls the principal of the student’s school, shares her concerns, and asks the principal if he knows why the student has stopped attending the afterschool program. The principal knows that the student has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital. He isn’t sure what information he can share with the site coordinator.
