Albany - An update to a story we told you about last week on a student whose parents pulled her out of Westover High School. Frank and Samantha Davis say the girls bullying their daughter have been disciplined and they are satisfied that school administrators did the right thing. So now, their 14 year old daughter is back in school.

The Davis' say parental involvement is essential in a child's education. Frank Davis said, "Take a little time, check with school administrators. Find out what's going on with your kids." Samantha said, "I'm not sure exactly what action has been taken due to the privacy act, but at this point I'm satisfied. I'm just hoping that everything continues to go well."

School administrators say they take threats or fights, verbal or physical against students seriously, and discipline a student who violates the rules according to school policy.
