Thank you for your communication, and for expressing that the records request was written so broadly as to be difficult to respond to. My apologies and I can certainly correct this. I do wonder why I am just now being informed of this over a month after the original request.

I would like to amend the request. The original request states:

"All staff emails from September 2020 to present that include the words hazing, sexual assault, rape, spirit stick, PIYA stick, genitals, football, coach."

I am amending that request to include all emails sent or received between September 2020 and the present by West Valley High School's principal, assistant principal, athletic director, former football coach Greg Grandell and any other staff members who serve as football or cheer coaches. Additionally please update the request for emails to include only these words "hazing, bullying, assault, harassment, rape, spirit stick, PIYA stick".

Please let me know ASAP if these amendments do not adequately narrow the scope of your search.

Additionally, I'd like to ask for an update on the status of the other documents requested on November 13, 2020.

Many thanks.
Annelise Pierce
