Student information for DPS' Eagleton, Castro and Munroe elementary schools stolen from worker's car

DENVER - Hundreds of parents in Denver are getting letters warning that the personal information of children attending three public schools may have been stolen.
Someone broke into a Denver Public Schools employee's car last week. Among the items stolen was a thumb drive with information from students at three different schools, DPS officials said.
Because school officials do not know the names of the specific students listed on the thumb drive, officials said they are notifying all parents at Eagleton Elementary, Castro Elementary and Munroe Elementary schools that their child's information may have been compromised.
One parent told 7NEWS that the thumb drive included birth dates, phone numbers and personal health information.
DPS said it appears the robber targeted the vehicle and not the employee.
