The Troy School District and Superintendent mailed out a letter to former students of the high school who graduated from 1994 to present indicating that a hard drive that was inside a guidance room was stolen.

The hard drive was stolen from a computer that was having technical work done Officials made the discovery of the stolen hard drive in mid-August but failed to inform those affected because, as stated in the letter, they weren.t sure what specific information was stored on the drive.
