    Either way, it wasn't said that there was a policy for an adult infringing on someone else's private property. In this case, the letter. If it was opened beforehand, I would say that the school should be held accountable for these actions, just as the girl should've followed the rules, the school should also be responsible for upholding the law.
    According to the internet:

    Opening someone else's mail is a federal offense.

    Section 1702. Obstruction of correspondence

    Whoever takes any letter, postal card, or package out of any post office or any authorized depository for mail matter, or from any letter or mail carrier, or which has been in any post office or authorized depository, or in the custody of any letter or mail carrier, before it has been delivered to the person to whom it was directed, with design to obstruct the correspondence, or to pry into the business or secrets of another, or opens, secretes, embezzles, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
