All IUFSD stakeholders are asked to report all incidents.

    Anyone who files a report/claim he/she knows to be false will be held responsible and reported to an appropriate law enforcement agency. Under no circumstances will false reports ever be considered "a joke" or "minor mischief." They will be immediately reported.
