We've lost a celebrated alumnus, John Perry Barlow '65: visionary internet pioneer, Grateful Dead lyricist, press freedom advocate , FVS parent (Leah '00) and former FVS trustee. He is paid a wonderful tribute here in the New York Times.
We write to update you about a report the School received from a former student who was at Fountain Valley in the 1980s. Although these events happened more than three decades ago, we value openness in our communications.

As you will read, the committee looking into this situation has concluded its work, and today, Will addressed the students and faculty—and now you—about the findings in the report.
